Could my boyfriend have given me a yeast infection?

Question: Could my boyfriend have given me a yeast infection?
I’ve never had a yeast infection and now I have one. I’m always very clean and healthy, but my boyfriend doesn’t shower as often as he should. He’s uncircumcised so I’m thinking it’s his fault I have a yeast infection.

IF this is the case, will simply showering before sex (no condom) keep me from getting another yeast infection, or does he need to be on antibiotics too?

There are 4 options.

1) He is not cleaning himself at all/properly- and carrying bacteria that can cause a yeast infection (Antibiotics will actually cause yeast infections too, the physician will not place you on that.)

2) He is sleeping around with another woman, who had a yeast infection and he picked it up from her. (Seriously this is a real thing, men can carry yeast infections around too)

3) You are not cleaning yourself right/ are on Antibiotics and contracted it yourself

4) you are constantly wearing wet panties that are not cotton. (Even wet cotton panties can cause yeast infections if they’re not cleaned enough)

I recommend going to walmart and checking out the medical aisle for some kind of medication for it. If it keeps up after the medication is administered (And administered correctly) It might be an STD. Which again he could have contracted from sleeping around, or could have already had if its your first time ever having sex.

If this happens and it turns out that the medication does not get rid of it, I’d state go right the hell to your doctor. And if it is just him being filthy, you should make him clean himself superior or no sex. If everytime you touch him you get a nasty vinegar smell on your hand, make him scrub it, or wrap it up in a condom,…

    Your boyfriend needs to get himself treat in order for you to avoid getting one. The reason for his yeast infection is candida over-growth. This usually occurs due to a weak immune system and poor hygiene/diet. I would recommend the following treatment for you and your boyfriend:

    Get organic coconut oil which cost about $5-7 dollars from a health food store and take 2 tablespoons of it every morning. It will help give relief from the inflammation caused by yeast (candida), externally and internally to your body.

    Get apple cider vinegar RAW. I would recommend the one from a company called Bragg’s which is about $6 dollars. Take 2 tablespoons of it the moment you wake up from bed and before you go to sleep. It helps encourage the growth of healthy bacteria, which in turn minimizes the overgrowth of candida and balances your body’s pH level.

    Eat lots of leafy Green Veg’s every time you are hungry.

    Get probiotics supplement which cost about 20-30 dollars. Use as directed

    Hi Olivia,
    Candida can be transmitted between people by direct contact, and so can actually be a sexually-transmitted disease.

    so if you or your lover has an active infection you should be extra-careful to follow the safer sex guidelines: wash your hands or change your gloves in between touching your own crotch and your partner’s, and keep your toys clean clean clean. And you should be aware that men can get yeast infections, often without obvious symptoms. It’s not uncommon for a yeast-infected woman who has unprotected sex with a man to infect her lover, treat her own infection, and then get reinfected next time she has sex with him. If you think your male lover might have a yeast infection, get him some treatment, and practice safe sex at least until both of you are sure that your infections are gone

    Olivia you mention antibiotics, they are are probably the leading cause of vaginal yeast infections in American women, and are a great example of the important principle that by using technology to solve problems, we create other problems. Say you take an antibiotic to cure your sinus infection. The antibiotic kills the unwanted bacteria in your sinuses, but can also kill the “good” bacteria in your crotch, upsetting the balance of your vaginal ecosystem, allowing the yeast to take over. (Antibacterial deodorant soap can have the same effect.) Most women have problems with only a few types of antibiotics, or with prolonged antibiotic treatment. Others get yeast infections every time they take antibiotics.

    Olivia If you’re like most Yeast Infection sufferers, the reason you’re having such a hard time getting rid of your yeast infection is because you’re using methods that couldn’t possibly work, physiologically speaking. Not only that, you could be utterly destroying your delicate internal balance and your health and making your Yeast Infection worse in the process!

    Even the natural products that promise to kill the source of the infection (e.g. killing Candida Albicans) do not work because candida is a naturally occurring yeast that is found in everybody and the only way to get rid of it is to neutralize the environment that encourages its overgrowth, not by killing the yeast.

    Only by tackling the real underline cause, the correct circumstances that promote the growth of candida and the exact source of candida in the body following a complete multidimensional holistic program will result in the complete elimination and prevention of Candida yeast infection and gaining back your health.
