    Been with her for over 6 months. Most of which we've been having unprotected sex. Neither of us have done unprotected sex before and we've both been cleared when tested for STIs. We both have good hygene however I caught it off her once before a few months ago and had to get some Flurozene or whatever its called.

    However I've recently caught it off her again so need to get some more. I'm just wondering if this is common for couples who have lots of unprotected sex even with good hygene? It's just a tad annoying to be honest.

    I'm going to assume she took the treatment as well so she wouldn't reinfect you? lots of sex can be a cause, if she is using showergels down there, too tight clothing if she is careful of these factors maybe it won't reoccur as often.

    Thrush is very common and should dissapear if you take the tablets though it can reoccur. When she has it you should not have unprotected sex for at least a week after her taking treatment or you will likely get it.
