No, periods do not get rid of thrush. If you no longer have thrush after a period, it means it was either a different issue or you’ve successfully treated the thrush (either naturally or with medication).
Thrush develops when an overgrowth of yeast called Candida albicans happens.
If you experience strange discharge, odor or irritation you should always seek medical advice.
If you’ve recently been on medication such as antibiotics, this can increase the risk of developing thrush, as the natural flora in your system changes.
Your doctor may prescribe an oral or internal medication in the form of pills or creams. You may also prefer to try natural treatments such as garlic, probiotics and natural yoghurt. However it’s important to remember that untreated thrush can lead to other health issues.
