I evloped thrush in my mouth, or rather a yeast infection. My doctor prescribed Oral Liquid Nystatin 3x a day, gargle & swallow.

Anyone know if this will mess with my Patch's reliability, working and stuff? I would have asked my doctor but my mom was there and she doesnt know...and would freak out.

I have decided to be on the safe side anyway and not have sex for a few weeks, even though I am only taking Nystatin for a week.

Thanks

Yes, it likely can.

So, I'd suggest holding off from sex or simply backing up with condom use.

Just an FYI: if you aren't using condoms and are engaging in oral sex, yeast infections/thrush can be transmitted orally. So, if that could be the case, be sure and inform your partner or partners to also see the doctor.

We always use a condom anyway- but I'd just feel safer if we didnt have sex. Shit happens.

Yeah, I didnt know for sure with the oral, but I figured.

Thanks
