What is Thrush and What Causes It?
Vaginal thrush is a yeast infection which almost all women experience at some time in their lives. It happens when the natural balance in your vagina is disturbed, meaning the natural yeast or fungus in your vagina can grow and cause infection. This is what leads to thrush.
Thrush is caused when there is disruption in the balance between bacteria and yeasts which naturally live within the vagina. This leads to symptoms like vaginal itching, burning sensations, and a thick discharge.
It can be caused by a variety of factors like:
- Medicines and antibiotics
- The trauma of sexual activity
- Perfumed soap, shower gels, or bubble baths
- Wearing tight clothing

How does Canesten Pessary work to treat thrush?
