Can you get yeast infection/ thrush from friction during sex?

In brief: Yes

If one of the partners has this infection, it can be transfered during sex, usually from microscopic breaks in the lining of the vagina or the penis during the activity.
Best to use a condom if the infection is active and see a urologist or gynecologist to treat the condition so this is not an issue.
