Can my boyfriend get my yeast infection?
I was recently prescribed Augmentin to clear up a bacterial throat infection, however all the augmentin did was hurt me/not help me. It gave me a yeast infection badly. Ive never had one before this. However, my boyfriend and I had sex before I realized it was infact a yeast infection. It was like 1-2 days before I found out it.
Can he get it? and if he was to get it, would he already be showing symptoms? Its been about 4 days now. What are the symptoms for a yeast infection in a man? The same as a woman?
And how can he clear it up? (i didnt go back to the dr. (because he is a shmuck) i just got monistat 3)
btw. i did have slight discomfort the last time we had sex. then 2 days later i found out it was a yeast infection. and we are having good old fashion vaginal sex =]
yes, he can get it. if he shows signs (redness on his penis, discharge, itching) he needs to go see a doctor so they can prescribe flagyl. do not have unprotected sex with him until you are well and sure the infection is gone in BOTH of you, or else you will keep giving it back to each other, which is not good because it will get harder and harder to kill it off .
