Absolutely.: Yeast are biological organisms that can spread fairly easily. A good example is thrush--a yeast infection of the mouth that frequently causes a diaper rash. Depending on where your yeast infection is located, whether you share the same towel or bathe together can all influence this possibility.

I recently got a yeast infection about 2 days ago And my partner thinks I have had other partners because of this but I havent.?
You are "right": There is no correlation between yeast infections and an additional partner since yeast infections can be caused by antibiotics, douches, etc. What is of greater concern is why your partner is so quick to express that concern when you clearly said "it isn't so". This relationship has some "communication issues" that need to be addressed to maintain a level of "intimacy". or not. ...Read more

Yeast? STD? Herpes?: You don't say exactly what symptoms you have. Maybe it's just what it feels like, a yeast infection. (It's not an STD, but symptoms may be triggered by having sex.)

Good luck! ...Read more

Not because of that: You can get a yeast infection because they are incredibly common but not for that reason; I don't consider yeast infections contagious because we all have yeast (candida albicans) already living on our skin, in our intestines and most women probably have a bit vaginally; whether it progresses to an infection has more to do with your diet, immune health, antibiotic use ; balance of other flora. ...Read more

Get a yeast infection almost every time I have unprotected sex with boyfriend, 1st partner; he doesn't have yeast infection. What might be the problem?
Not boyfriend: The problem of yest infections is not usually related to a partner...it's not an STD (sexually transmited disease) but rather an overgrowth of your own flora (yeast re everywhere). Have you taken any antibiotics lately? (a common cause for yeast infections). It is important to ask if you are diabetic or have/know of any other medical conditions which might be related. ...Read more
