Can STD cause heavier periods

My partner has had a merino coil fitted for last 5 years and normally only has very light spotting during her period. Her last 2 have been heavier requiring the use of sanitary towels. She appears to have had a bout of thrush last week due to being on a 2 week course of antibiotics with White / slightly yellow discharge and sore external genitals. She used canestan cream and took probiotic which seems to have at least cleared up the external soreness. She's not sure about the discharge as she is currently menstruating. Are there any STDs which cause heavier periods and if so which ones? Is heavier period a common symptoms of STDs, if not what could be the problem? Thanks

would you even remotely worry about this if you hadn't had an encounter with someone else this year?

Hi Grace,
thanks for responding, I guess I would not worry normally. I take it you are telling me that it is not An STD symptom then?
Thanks S

Found this article which was helpful.

although I see lots of site saying some STDs can cause heavier periods, none specify which ones. Can anyone add any detail?

women do have heavier periods now and then. you don't have reason to suspect your partner has a std from you at this point. If she is concerned, she should follow up with her gyn.

Hi Grace,
As I said in my previous post, my wife thinks she has thrush. On Saturday night she used a flucanazole pill and canestan pessary. Since she says the symptoms are worse and today she has pain in her lower abdomen and bleeding from her vagina despite having finished her period a fews days ago. Along with her White discharge and the fact she says it hurts when she pees due to sore vulva do you think this now sounds like and STD? I'm really worried I've given her something now.
Regards,
S

Hi Grace,
I forgot to mention I have what I think is a bad case of thrush on my glans (glands) and foreskin which I noticed yesterday. I have not been tested for herpes. I note you are and expert in Herpes, do you know how can I tell the difference between thrush and herpes? Also could herpes cause my partners symptoms?
Many thanks

Your wife needs to go and be seen and get a full work up done.

same with you, if you have a rash, be seen and confirm that it is indeed fungal in nature so you can treat it properly.

It's pretty easy to tell the difference between herpes and jock itch most times.
