Maybe not yeast: This depends on details of your symptoms and whether your apparent yeast infections were professionally diagnosed. Yeast is not an STD and is rarely caught from sex partners. Other infections can cause similar symptoms. You and your partner should be checked for STDs, especially gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, and bacterial vaginosis (although BV isn't strictly an STD). Good luck!
