I seem to get thrush every month just before my periods. This has been doing on for about 7 months now and its affecting my relationship with my boyfriend and of course extremely uncomfortable.

Hello

So you are suffering from recurrent yeast infection.It should be treated properly and the cause must be evaluated.

You must check your blood sugar, avoid systemic antibiotics and steroid.

Next the proper treatment-

tab fluconazole 150 mg daily till the symptoms disappear then continue 150 mg weekly for three months.

I think this will help you.
