Can my partner give me yeast infection?

Welcome and thank you for your question.

Yeast infection is not a sexually transmitted disease. But sometimes, if the male penis is infected with yeast and the woman's immune system is depressed at that time due to some cause, it can trigger off a yeast infection in the vagina.

Also semen released during sex can cause alteration of the ph of the vagina and a yeast infection can then start occur.

I hope this helps.

I will get treated and get it again.can it be from him not being sercumsize?
No, circumcision has no effect on you getting repeated yeast infections.

You need to consult your doctor for a vaginal swab to be sent to a lab and take long term treatment. Taking yogurt daily will also help prevent recurrent yeast infections.

So u saying if he having sex with me and sum one else with a yeast infection he cant give it to me?
No, he cannot give you a yeast infection, even if he is sleeping with someone else. Yeast infection does not spread like that.
