    You're not mature enough to be in a relationship. Wait a few years.

    Oh come on! Thrush is incredibly common, not some exotic disease, I doubt your boyfriend would be that horrified. Even if it does gross him out, why should he not know about an infection that he has?
    She gave him the infection...

    But now he has it, he should be able to deal with it without needing to be drugged and lied to! He might even have had symptoms, and if they suddenly magically disappear he won't know what it is, and if it comes back in the future he won't know how to deal with it. Thrush happens, and it's better that he learns about it now, especially if he has a girlfriend who is prone to it.

    I completely agree, and have had oral thrush myself so I can attest to it being nothing more than a nuisance. But it was your initial tone that surprised me; that the boyfriend would be considered unreasonable for complaining about an infection that he unwittingly caught from his girlfriend.

    Some pretty uptight people in this thread. Just slip him the pill. I would much prefer to not know about it, and be rid of it. Those sorta things gross guys out. Although... for some reason if I found out my girlfriend had slipped me a pill I would DESTROY HER, regardless of the reason.

    Funny how that works.

    As someone else said, if you can't talk to him about this kind of thing maybe you shouldn't be having sex with him. Honestly, you can either carry on with your thrush and keep suffering, or you can say something and get you both sorted. If he actually does have it, I'm sure he'd be aware of it himself! So honestly just mention it, I'm sure he'd appreciate that than you constantly reinfecting each other, I'm sure he'd appreciate being free of it too. Sometimes this is the price you pay for sex.

    If you're grown up enough to be having sex with him, you ought to be grown up enough to talk about sex related issues with him. Just tell him and withhold sex until he goes and gets it sorted so you ensure that A. He goes and gets it sorted, and B. There isn't any chance that you could re-infect him after he gets it sorted out. Simple.

    Erm..what is thrush?
    A songbird, once common throughout the English countryside.


    All we seem to have around here are pigeons, magpies and flipping green Australian Parakeets...

    If I had it I sure as hell wouldn't care if I was slipped a pill and it went away.

    ¯\(°_o)/¯

    I'd probably guess that it was her as well, I might bother mentioning it in a casual way afterwards (ie not settling down for a very serious conversation about it) but I really don't see the problem with skipping the hassle..

    Just tell him you think he's got thrush, he's giving it to you and if he takes one or two pills you'll be sorted. A little embarrassment won't hurt him

    This. I mean seriously, that's the mature and sensible thing to do and it's only as embarrassing as you want it to be.

    It's only thrush fgs. If he doesn't understand what that is and how much of a non-deal it is, even after you explain it to him, forget about him

    If he's got thrush, he'll almost certainly know about it anyway. Even if he doesn't know exactly what it is, if you tell him you'll be doing him a favour.
