What are the chances of thrush being passed onto your partner?
Would you be mad at your partner if it was passed on to you?
Thanks x

    thrush is a fungus that naturally lives on our bodies, you will find it on your skin, in your mouth and in the vagina amongst othr places. the bodies natural bacteria and a healthy immune system keeps it under control but if your body is under some kind of stress such as depression, feeling low, strong antibiotics, caning it too much or toomuch sugar in the blood ie diabetes, etc, this fungus overgrows. Its easily treated with antifungals pessaries or cream or tablets from your GP, the ones over the counter are not really strong enuff but yes you can try the ones OTC.
    If your BF has it in his mouth, (check pic for oral thrush to see what it looks like) and gives you oral, or if you have it in your vagina etc then it can be passed on only IF your bodys immune system is LOW, ie you're feeling a bit crappy, so no i wouldnt be mad. It isnt a sign that he has been cheating on you, more a sign that he or you need some TLC. Increase vit C intake, that helps and avoid sugars for a while as it feeds the fungal growth. hope this helps.

    Hey thanks, iv done a lot of research on the matter but got asked if it could be passed on and was unsure what to say! I'd feel really bad if so, as it's not the nicest of things to have. Anyone got any experiences with this? Thank you.

    Yes I have had this, and i got it from my exBF mouth,I could see it in his mouth. He had it cos he does alot of coke and eats lots of chocolate, (sugar + low immune system) and i was feeling pretty run down at the time so he went down on me and passed it on.

    I never knew it could be passed on like that. God knows why iv got it, but it can just happen randomly can't it?

    After putting pessime, vaginal tablet inside, how long will it take for the itching to go away completely?
