Taking cilest oral contraceptive. Getting recurrent bouts of thrush. Does it cause by hormonal changes?

Hi, I am 28 years old female, have been taking cilest oral contraceptive for the last 4 or 5 years, in the last 12 months I am getting recurrant bouts of thrush (goes away with diflucan), have had STI tests and same sexual partner, would cerazette be a better choice in contraception as I understand recurrant thrush can be caused by hormonal changes?

Hi, recuring thrush could be due to transfer of infection from the partner to partner . as the infection is sensitive to diflucan if both the partners use it at the same time.
He may not have any symptoms but he can be a carreer of the infection and causing you reinfection. Thank you.
