Your intimate problems Q: CAN a man catch thrush from a female partner? A: THRUSH is a common condition in women. It is not sexually transmitted and results from an overgrowth of yeast cells in the vagina.
This is due to a change in the balance of the bacteria in the vagina.This may result from being run down or unwell, taking antibiotics, douching or overzealous washing.
