Can a Man Get a Yeast Infection from a Woman?

A yeast infection is an overgrowth of candida in the body. Many women (as many as 3 out of 4) experience yeast infections at least once in their life. Men do not get yeast infections as often as women, but they definitely are susceptible to the same overgrowth of candida. Given that women are more likely to have a yeast infection, it is only natural to wonder “can a man get a yeast infection from a woman?”. From the research I have conducted, the answer is yes.

There are many ways a yeast infection manifests itself. One of those ways is vaginal and penile discharge. If you were to have unprotected intercourse with somebody who has a yeast infection and has discharge, it can transfer to you and thus give you a yeast infection. A man can get a yeast infection from a woman who is infected and woman can get it from a man. This means a monogamous couple could keep passing the yeast infection back and forth and never get rid of it.

Fortunately, it is relatively easy to keep from passing or getting a yeast infection this way. One way is to avoid intercourse when you or your partner has a yeast infection. The other way is to use protection.

If you really want to address the problem, you can check out the Yeast Infection No More program and learn how to cure a yeast infection and keep it from coming back. Another good thing to try is Yeastrol which is homeopathic yeast infection treatment. Both of these address the problem from the inside which is where yeast infections originate.
