Yeast Infection in Women and Men (cont.)

Medical Author:
Medical Editor:

How can a man protect himself from contracting a yeast infection from his sexual partner?

Condoms may help prevent transmission of a yeast infection, but they are not completely effective since there may be contact with areas of the body not covered by the condom. Avoiding intercourse when a woman has symptoms of a yeast infection is the best way to prevent spreading of the infection.
