Can you get a yeast infection from having sex? And would it cause stomach discomfort ?

In brief: Yeast infx not STI's

Yeast infections are not considered stis because you get them unrelated to sex often.
, and health experts don’t know for sure if they are transmitted sexually. About 12 to 15 percent of men get an itchy rash on the penis if they have unprotected sex with an infected woman. If this happens to your partner, he should see a doctor. Uncircumcised men are at higher risk too. Stomach issues not common.
