Is it possible to get a vaginal yeast infection from a man?

I very rarely used to have vaginal yeast infections. Now I recently started dating this guy, and it is the second time I get a yeast infection in about a month.

    Yes. If he has an infection he can and will pass it to you through intercourse.

    THE FACTS: Why a Yeast Infection Happens, Symptoms of a Yeast Infection & How to Cure it Fast

    Candida is a bacterial fungus that lives in both men and women.

    More specifically called Candida Albicans, this fungus thrives in the digestive tract (as well as the vagina in women) and lives in harmony with acidic bacteria called Acidophilus.

    The acidophilus, being an acid regulates the Candida Albicans (a base).

    When people eat certain foods like complex sugars, the Candida Albican multiply and change the balance between the Candida and Acidophilus in the body.

    Suddenly, the acidophilus can no longer regulate the outnumbering Candida.

    This creates what is commonly known as Candida Overgrowth or a Yeast Infection.

    The symptoms (you may not experience all of them):

    - white cottage cheese-like discharge

    - some odor

    - dryness (can cause bleeding)

    - digestive problems

    - itchiness

    - burning urination

    - painful intercourse

    - a feeling of just not being "normal"

    Here are some safe, natural cures you can implement.

    - avoid scented soaps

    - avoid sugars and complex carbs for a week

    - air out the infected area while you're sleeping at night

    - add grapefruit extract to your water during the day (balances hormones)

    - eat probiotics like cottage cheese and yogurt

    - shower frequently

    -drink lots of water and eat plenty of fiber to flush the infection

    Yes. Yeast infections are cause by bacteria.

    You sure can get it from him or at least, the bacteria on his friendly bits. Save yourself from the pain and make sure he's clean before you bone him, especially if he's uncircumcised.

    Oh and shockingly enough, eating too much yogurt can give you a yeast infection too.

    im not sure, so id recommend going to your doctor. but i do know that you can get infections from having sex and not washing afterwards. im not talking immediatly after, but within a few hours. so that might be a possibility, sometimes body chemistry between two people just doesnt work out.
