Thrush: treatments and remedies
Couples may also pass a yeast infection back and forth during sex. If you have a vaginal yeast infection, be sure your partner isn't also infected, which most often happens in uncircumcised men.
- Try a herbal rinse. Make a strong tea using 2 teaspoons each of dried thyme and sage and 250ml boiling water. Steep for 15 minutes and strain. Use the cooled liquid as a soothing vaginal wash. Both thyme and sage have antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and help to fight the infections while also soothing the irritated skin tissues.
- Go to the toilet before and after sexual intercourse. Vaginal mucous membranes are normally slightly acidic, but semen is alkaline, making it friendlier to yeast. Passing urine will help to make the area less inviting to infectious growth.
