Preventing thrush
I recently developed a mild thrush, and decided to go to my GP to get a one day treatment (Canestan VC1), and the thrush was resolved.

I am on the contraceptive pill and thus I know I am more susceptible to thrush. I would like to know if there is any supplements I can take to prevent it from recurring.

I see there is much media around probiotic supplements now. Will taking that prevent thrush?
