If I have a yeast infection or BV can my boyfriend get it sexually or orally?

In brief: No sex for a while

It is possible to acquire an oral yeast infectionby performing oral sex on a partner with genital infection.
But BV causes no apparent health problem in male partners, certainly no known oral infection. But you should not be having sex at all, oral or otherwise, until your infection(s) are gone and symptoms cleared up. Doing so will delay and maybe even prevent cure. Discuss with your doctor.
