May not be yeast OR: May not be yeast infections, it may just be irritation due to other factors. Or it may be yeast- the change in the ph balance that occurs following intercourse may trigger irritation due to candida (yeast) or to other causes. Hard to say without an exam. If otc yeast treatments help, then is likely yeast infections.

Reinfection: Your sexual partner may be transmitting it back to you. If your partner is a man, have them apply an antifungal cream to penis twice a day for two weeks. You should treat vaginal infection through one menstrual period.
