What Is Thrush?
Thrush is a yeast infection that occurs due to bacterial imbalance in the intimate areas of both men and women. Even though thrush affects women more, it can affect men as well or even be passed from the female partner. While it can be transmitted during intercourse, it is still not considered a sexually transmitted disease. The bacteria that causes it is always in our body and is not acquired from the partner.
Some of the most common symptoms of thrush in men include foreskin swelling, reddening, itching and burning sensations. Some men also experience white discharge, as well as pain when urinating, having sex or pulling the foreskin back.
In women, thrush usually causes vaginal discomfort, thick, white discharge and discomfort when urinating. It can also cause splits in the vaginal skin and a burning sensation during sex.
What Causes Thrush?
Thrush is caused by a fungus known as “Candida Albicans”. These fungi are present in our bodies at all times but may thrive in warm and moist areas if not kept in check by our immune systems. When they spread they cause an overgrowth of yeast known as thrush.
In men, the thrush usually stays in the head of the penis. This is why thrush is more common in women since the vagina is much more suitable for the growth of the fungus. This is why thrush mostly affects uncircumcised men. Men with a weakened immune system are more prone to the infection.
Even though the infection may be spread through intercourse, having sex with a woman won’t necessarily infect you.

Thrush treatment is simple, fast and can be approached from a few different angles. You can treat the problem directly using a topical antifungal cream. These creams are applied to the infected area twice a day for seven days. Topical creams target the yeast overgrowth and restore the natural bacterial balance in the area, treating thrush at the source.
You can also use oral treatments which target the thrush in the same way but are taken in tablet form. The treatment usually consists of one dose and is more practical yet equally effective. You can find both options available online at True Medical.
Experts suggest pairing thrush treatment with corticosteroid creams to treat symptoms such as burning and itching. Unlike sexually transmitted diseases, thrush does not have to be treated in both partners simultaneously after intercourse unless symptoms develop in both.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Thrush Caused By Poor Hygiene?
Thrush is not caused by poor hygiene. It is usually caused by an upset level of microorganisms and bacteria in the vagina. While using unperfumed products to regularly wash your intimate areas is important, there are a lot of factors that contribute to thrush, not only hygiene.
Will Thrush Disappear On Its Own?
A thrush infection may go away on its own once the normal levels of microorganisms are restored. However, this might take some time without proper thrush treatment. Since thrush symptoms are very uncomfortable, patients are advised to seek treatment as soon as possible. Antifungal treatments usually help clear out the infection within a week.
Can Thrush Be Transmitted Through Sex?
It is common for sexual partners to transmit thrush through unprotected sex. Vaginal and penile thrush can also lead to oral thrush if the partners engage in oral sex. Unprotected sex with both partners suffering from thrush may lead to reinfection, causing a cycle that’s hard to break if the partners don’t treat the condition.
Can Thrush Cause Complications During Pregnancy?
No. Thrush is a common occurrence during pregnancy, linked to the hormone level changes a pregnant woman goes through. Thrush does not harm the baby, however, it should be treated due to the discomfort it causes.
I’ve Had Thrush Repeatedly. How Can I Stop Getting It Again?
There are a lot of lifestyle changes you can adopt which will prevent you from getting reinfected. Stop using perfumed soap to wash your intimate areas. Wear loose-fitting cotton underwear and trousers. Make sure you’re lubricated before sex. Use protection with partners suffering from thrush. If you regularly suffer from thrush consult your doctor, as it might indicate an underlying condition such as diabetes or a weak immune system.
I Have Colored And Smelly Discharge. Is This A Symptom Of Thrush?
Coloured and smelly discharge is usually not a symptom of thrush. However, it can be a symptom of a bacterial infection such as Bacterial Vaginosis. If you experience these symptoms, consult your doctor for appropriate treatment.
