  • Weakened immune system. Women with weakened immune systems, such as HIV / AIDS patients receiving chemotherapy or suffering from lupus are at increased risk of developing thrush, compared with other women.
  • Contraceptives. Some studies suggest that oral contraceptives increase the risk of thrush. However, this is ambiguous data.

A doctor diagnoses yeast infection through analysis of existing symptoms. However, if the thrush recur even after treatment, it is desirable to pass the test of vaginal secretions in order to make sure that the cause of symptoms is indeed a fungus, not all bacterial vaginosis or trichomoniasis.

Typically, 1-3-day course of antifungal drugs is sufficient to suppress infection. If symptoms are severe, the treatment will last longer.

Medications taken by mouth or orally, or vaginally. Drugs administered vaginally for the treatment of thrush, are known as intravaginal pessaries.

Oral medications may have some side effects, including nausea, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, and / or bloating.

Among intravaginal pessaries isolated clotrimazole, econazole, or miconazole. They are much less likely to cause side effects, however, they may be uncomfortable to use and cause mild irritation after administration.

If the patient is aged 12-16 years, she appointed oral antifungal medications, such as: fluconazole, itraconazole.

If a woman has sores in the vagina, appointed by the cream, for example: clotrimazole or econazole.

If thrush is left after the therapy, the patient should always inform your doctor.

Pregnant and lactating women should receive intravaginal pessaries, but no oral antifungal drugs, since they fall into the milk and cross the placental barrier.
