So I had what I thought was a yeast infection...quite thick white discharge, soreness during/after sex and a slight itch, so I used a canestan pessary and cream, abstained from sex for a week and that seemed to clear it up! Then I had sex again, and it was sore straight after sex again and the slight itching is back. My partner shows no signs of a yeast infection but do you reckon he's passing it back to me each time we have sex? (we don't use condoms, I'm on implanon). If so, will the oral capsule be sufficient for him to use and me to use a pessary again? If anyone is in england could they also answer this question. We don't have much money between us, he gets free prescriptions, do you reckon the doctor will prescribe him the oral canestan even though he, himself, shows no symptoms? Otherwise thats a tenner on one tablet that I've got to buy!!
