What causes thrush?

Thrush is caused when there is disruption in balance between bacteria and yeasts which naturally live within the vagina. This leads symptoms like vaginal itching, burning sensations, and a thick discharge.

It can be caused by a variety of factors like:

  • Medicines and antibiotics
  • Trauma of sexual activity
  • Tampons
  • Stress
  • Perfumed soap, shower gels, or bubble baths
  • Menstruation
  • Wearing tight clothing
  • Pregnancy
