My girlfriend discovered she has a yeast infection today. We had unprotected sex yesterday. Should I be worried and can I get one through sex?

My girlfriend discovered she has a yeast infection today. We had unprotected sex yesterday. Should I be worried and can I get one through sex?

Probably not: Yeast infecitons generally are not sexually transmitted. Sometimes the male partners of infected women develop irritation or itching of the genital area, in which case you can share your partner's yeast cream. Otherwise don't worry about it. However, be aware that STDs can cause similar symptoms as yeast -- so get checked if her problem doesn't clear up quickly with yeast treatment. ...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.) Herpes is the main STD cause of vulvar or labial irritation or itching. Gonorrhea or chlamydia less likely but possible. Don't screw around with this: see a doctor or clinic ASAP. Good luck! ...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?

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

Is it dangerous to have unprotected sex with my girlfriend if she has a yeast infection?

Is it dangerous to have unprotected sex with my girlfriend if she has a yeast infection?

No: It may be a bit messy, and it may make her more uncomfortable or more itchy, and it is even possible for you to get a yeast infection from her (especially if you perform oral sex on her). My suggestion, give the girl a break! Cuddle, give her a back rub, a foot rub, but let her heal before you have sex even though it is not "dangerous". ...Read more

Can you tell me exactly when is it safe to have unprotected sex after a yeast infection?

Anytime: Technically speaking, yeast infections aren't classified as stds, so you don't pass it on to your partner during intercourse. However, yeast infections may cause vulvovaginal symptoms which are quite uncomfortable. Therefore, as long as you are feeling better and improved, it would be up to you when to engage in sex again. Fyi: some vag yeast meds may cause a condom to break down & fail. ...Read more

Having unprotected sex with two different men, I always get yeast infections. Why? And what can I do to prevent it?

Chronic Yeast: There could be several causes for this. It could be coincidental to sex...And be from something else you are ingesting. It could be irritation from the lubricant or the condom.

You may be allergic to something and the irritation in the vaginal cavity reacts with a yeast overgrowth.

See: See your gynecologist or womens health care provider. Many primary care providers can perform women's health exams as well. If you are suffering from a sexually transmitted infection, then it will be crucial to diagnose appropriately. If diagnosed, your provider will most likely put you on an antibiotic regimen, and can provide a prescription for a topical ointment that can help soothe the skin. Do this right away because an untreated STI can cause terrible effects on the reproductive organs. ...Read more
