Learn more about thrush
Approximately 70-75% of women will experience vaginal thrush in their lifetime, with symptoms of itching, burning, and a thick, white discharge.
Of these women, around 40-50% will suffer from repeated episodes of thrush, and 5-8% may experience recurrent thrush.
Vaginal thrush is not a sexually transmitted infection (STI). However, sexual activity can disrupt the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina and cause tiny vaginal tears that may increase the risk of a woman developing thrush.
Risk factors for thrush
Vaginal thrush can affect women of all ages, however, certain factors can increase the risk of developing vaginal thrush.
These factors include:
- Taking antibiotics, which can kill the good bacteria that keep the yeast in balance
- Having a weakened immune system, which can make it harder for the body to fight off infection
- Wearing tight-fitting clothes or synthetic underwear, which can trap moisture and provide a breeding ground for the yeast
- Having diabetes, which can increase the amount of sugar in the vagina, making it a more hospitable environment for the yeast
