Hey, really helpful info there thanks so much. I myself dont actually have vaginal thrush but am suffering from candida. Im ready to start on an anti fungal and the most effective one i think is diflucan (fluconazole), its a very strong drug so doctors are very reluctant to perscribe it. To buy it it would cost me around £100 ($185) which i really dont have so im hoping i can convince my doctor to perscribe it for me. Im not sure how to approach the situation though as candida is dismissed by most medical professional so do you think id be able to convince the GP i have vaginal thrush and have him perscribe the diflucan without any examinations?? i know its abit hasty but im really confident in this drug!
