Can your boyfriend cheating on U cause U 2 get a yeast infection?

I heard from a woman at work that her husband was cheating on her and the way that she found out was that she popped up with a yeast infection. They didn’t use condoms ever so she said she new that he gave it 2 her by being with another woman. Is this possible only if the other woman had a yeast infection and he passed it 2 her? Or is there any other way this could’ve been possible?

    You can get a yeast infection regardless of a cheating boyfriend or not. It is mainly due to poor hygiene and not wiping correctly. Don’t blame men for all of out problems, you feel me?

    You bet it can. But keep in mind it is not the only way.

    Yeast infections are easily transmitted through unprotected sex.

    Women can get yeast infections from taking bubble baths or antibotics. It does not mean that someone has cheated on them!

    if your husband did cheat on you w/ a woman who had one, yes, he can pass it to you. There are however, several other ways to contract one, it doesn’t mean he strayed. Your friend from work is misinformed if she thinks this is the only way to develop one.

    I suppose it could be possible, but there are many other ways that she could have gotten one.

    you can get a yeast infection alot of ways…. just because you have one doesn’t mean you cheated or he cheated with a woman who gave it to him and in turn he gave it to you… they happen for many reasons.

    No what it is is differnt body chemicals missing. If he slept with another woman unprotected and then sleep with his wife chemical have been switched and it will cause infections either yeast of bactirial. Its the same way stds get from one person to the other.

  17. Books says:

    It can happen in other ways, even nuns can get a yeast infection, but I would have red flags going up over this if she doesn’t normally get yeast infections. When my husband cheated on me I use to get yeast infections, so it is very possible, but you cannot blame until you have more to go on then a yeast infection.

    Woman carry the thrush bacteria (yeast) in her system all the time.
    Although it can be sexually transmitted, sometimes the woman can get a yeast infection due to stress, feeling run down or taking a course of anti biotics.
    So really, he could have been unfaithful, or, she just developed a yeast infection and passed it onto him before her symptoms were showing..

    I don’t think so.

    no, that is not always the case, babys get yeast infections. i never had one unless i was pg. but it could be from antibiotcs, there are many reasons for yeast infections.

  21. marthesse says:

    You can get a yeast infection for a number of different reasons yes it can be caught but every woman has it inside her and sometimes a change in washing powder or soap can cause you to get it or a change in temperature through wearing tight clothes you should avoid perfumed soaps and wear cotton underwear or at least make sure they have a cotton gusset.

    Yeast infections usually occur naturally, due to an imbalance. Yeast exists in your vagina all the time, it’s when it is knocked out of balance that its growth increases and overpopulation results in "infection", although it’s really just over-production.

    Now, as for the "other woman". It is possible that he carried more yeast into her system, causing overpopulation, but I wouldn’t end a marriage over it. There are too many other causes of imbalance to assume it was him.

    FYI, it is also possible to get over-production due to medications that dry out mucus membranes, like cold remedies, some muscle relaxants, etc. Also, using too absorbant a tampon when you’re tapering can dry you out enough to result in an imbalance that could result in over-production of yeast.

    Some vaginal infections are passed from one person to another through sexual contact, but others, such as yeast infections, usually are not. Most vaginal infections are due to bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis or yeast infections, yet there also may be other causes of rapid inflammation. These causes may include allergies and vaginal irritations or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

    Yeast is normally present in the vagina in small numbers. A vaginal yeast infection is caused by an overabundance or overgrowth of yeast cells (primarily candida albicans) that normally colonize the vagina. Major factors that increase the risk of vaginal yeast infections include pregnancy, uncontrolled diabetes and the use of birth control pills or antibiotics.

    Other factors that may increase the incidence of yeast infections are the use of douches, perfumed feminine hygiene sprays, topical antimicrobial agents and tight, poorly ventilated clothing and underwear. Whether or not yeast infections can be transmitted sexually is unknown. HIV-infected women may have severe yeast infections that are hard to treat.

  24. Critter says:

    Yes and no. I know of a few couples who have passed yeast infections back and forth for a while and couldn’t get rid of it until both of them were treated at the same time. However, there are a lot of other ways to throw off the yeast balance and cause an infection so I don’t think it’s a great indicator of cheating.

    Now if she popped up with a venereal disease that might be a different story although some of them can be passed by wet towels in male locker rooms too so you never know.
