  • Fluconazole for thrush help

    Last October I got a really bad fever and pain in my vagina, my doctor said I had a throat infection and gave me antibiotics. That did nothing and she gave me more antibiotics, this kept going on for months without her bothering to test for anything, she just gave me antibiotics like she was handing out sweets.

    She then told me to see the nurse who gave me clotimazole cream which also didn't help. The burning and stinging in my vagina has got a lot worse since October, there is also a bad odour and white discharge in my vagina but I also get clear watery discharge everyday and I have a constant fever.

    They finally referred me to a gynaecologist who did a swab test and said I have a heavy thrush and prescribed me fluconazole to take once a month for the next 4 months. I took the first tablet yesterday but I'm not sure if it's doing anything, how long before the thrush is cleared up?

    And I haven't been getting any itching which is usually a symptom of thrush but I always have a fever and abdominal pain since this has started.

    Can anyone please help?

    Thanks

  • The fluconazole hasn't been helping at all, should I go and see my GP or wait another month until I take my next fluconazole tablet?

    Anyone here got rid of thrush with fluconazole?
    Thanks
