If I have a yeast infection/ am getting over a yeast infection, does that affect my partner? Can the guy catch anything from me?

    Men can catch a yeast infection from their woman.

    It’s very rare for him to catch something just by going down on you, unless he’s down there for hours. He must not do it often or he would have told you it was getting funky and you could have been checked out sooner.

    During intercourse its possible for the yeast to enter through his urethra. The chances of spreading the infection to the partner depends on the severity of the infection and the frequency of unprotected sex.

    It can cause the symptom of "Burning during urination" which can be mistaken for a UTI (Urinary Track Infection) or STD until he can visit a doctor and have a simple urinalysis test to identify the culture growth.

    If you have a yeast infection (or are still recovering from one) you need to tell your partner(s) so that (if they start feeling symptoms) they can get checked out and have some idea what to expect. If you don’t tell him he may go to the doctor’s assuming he has a normal UTI, and the doc is lazy (or your partner insist "no need for test") and just provides antibiotics without testing, the problem will just get worse. Normal antibiotics are not designed to affect yeast, they requier a different treatment than UTIs.

    He may just jump to the conclusion that his burning symptom is an STD and assume you’ve been cheating on him. He’ll be more likely to assume an STD if he already took antibiotics for a UTI and they didn’t work because (like above) he didn’t have the urinalysis done.

    You need to tell your partner(s) every time you get (or think your getting) a yeast infection so that they know what’s really going on and that you don’t create an atmosphere of mistrust in the relationship. Mature guys will understand and know that yeast infections can manifest under a variety of conditions (she’s taking antibiotics, using tampons, has hormone/biochemical changes, etc.) and are a common (and usually harmless) occurance for women.

    Men can catch a yeast infection from a woman, but it is very rare. It’s more likely if he doesn’t bathe very often and lets things get skanky down there, or if he’s overweight and his stuff doesn’t get much air. But for the most part, he can’t catch a yeast infection from you.

    Yeast infections can affect men too. Uncircumcised men will harbour the spores under the foreskin and if left long enough, the skin on the glans will start to shed like skin does when it gets sunburned.
    The meds you take to clear it up will also work for him. If he is not treated, he can pass the infection back to you even if he has no symptoms.

    The worst yeast infection I ever had was one I caught from my boyfriend. I had it for over a month and it took 3 different medications plus he had to be treated just to get rid of it. If you have a yeast infection avoid sex or use a condom. The doctor said she hadn’t seen one as bad as mine for years and she checked him and told him to treat his for a minimum of 2 weeks and not to skip any days or we would both go thru that again. So yes he can not only get a yeast infection but you can pass it back and forth or he can pass it on from a former partner and you could get hers.

    Not unless he shows signs of a yeast infection. Rarely, men who have sex with women with yeast infections will get an itchy rash on their penis. If this happens, he should see his doctor
