Reoccurring yeast infection in woman. 28 year old woman keeps getting yeast infection. Could male be infected? She showers after intercourse every tim

Yeast infection: It is not infection in the male, but rather it is possible that the skin of his penis has been colonized with the Candida (yeast), and he is passing it back to you. Do not know what you have been treated with, but if orally, take it through one period and at the same time use an anti-fungal cream on his penis every day. If that doesn't work, ask again. Best wishes for a good outcome. ...Read more

Also vaginal douches may cause changes in the flora of the vagi ...Read more

Is vaginal yeast infection a sign of diabetes? 27-year-old married female.

Can be but unlikely: Vaginal yeast infections are very common in women and mostly have nothing to do with diabetes. If you have diabetes, you're more likely to get them because sugar in the urine feeds yeast cells normally present on the skin anyway which can lead to overgrowth. If you're worried about having diabetes, please see your doctor. A hba1c can be checked. If you're spilling sugar in urine, it will be high. ...Read more
