See answer: Yeast infections are not considered sexually transmitted infections. Although yeast infections may spread from one sexual partner to the other, it's rare and in vast majority of women who have recurrent yeast infections, it has nothing to do with male partner, yeast infections primarily occur in uncircumcised men and common in diabetics. Proper hygiene and topical/oral antifungals used to treat.

See your doctor: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.
