In brief: Fluconazole?

Most vaginal candida (yeast) infections are not caught from partners.
Probably you carry yeast normally in your vagina or rectum. New yeast infections usually mean your own natural yeasts have grown to larger numbers. Don't worry about it unless and until you start to have frequent recurrent symptoms. In that case, ask your doctor about oral fluconazole (Diflucan®) once a week for prevention.
