Hello Anonymous,
Thank you for coming back to us for help.
From what you have shared, I suspect
that both you and your husband have
candidiasis, which is a fungal infection

that can affect the genitals.
In men, genital candidiasis affects the
head of the penis. Candidiasis is caused by
a yeast fungus, Candida. Men with genital
candidiasis may experience an itchy rash
on the penis.
You could have vaginal candidiasis, also
caused by the yeast fungus, Candida.
Symptoms include a thick, white, odor-
free vaginal discharge with a cottage
cheese appearance, itching and irritation
in the vagina and vulva, a burning
sensation, especially during intercourse
and urination, redness and swelling of the
vulva and vaginal pain or soreness.
I think you keep spreading the fungal
infection back and forth to each other
during sexual intercourse.
If indeed this is candidiasis, you need to
both be treated with an antifungal
medication not an antibiotic.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching back out to the EmpowHER community with your question! That is great to hear you have gotten on an actual medication now for your infection. 

Having such dark urine can be a sign of liver problems while taking this medication. Please talk to your doctor as soon as you can. With Ketoconazole, dark urine is listed as a warning of a potential liver problem. 

Even if this is just occurring in the morning, talk to your doctor and explain this symptom in case it gets worse.

Please keep us updated!
