It can take 2-5 days after getting the infection.

You can use yogurt with lactobacillus.

Otherwise, prescription antifungal drops, tablets can be needed.

Let me put it in a diferrent way

It is common to have discharge when you have oral or vaginal sex, until you have whitish discharge seen profusely outside or you get smell, itching, it is not thrush, so you need not worry
