  • You will get a yeast infection from not peeing when you get the urge, wearing a bathing suit all day, not wiping prperly, not showering and cleaning yourself.. old tampons/pads.
    The list will go on.. BUT you get yeast infections from having sex and not cleaning your self after the fact.

  • Funny, years ago I was celibate for a long time and never had one yeast infection. For some reason I only get them during times I'm having sex.

  • There are many reasons why yeast infections occur, not all of them to do with sex, as any doctor will tell you. But if one partner has a yeast infection, it is important you both be treated as it can be passed from one to another. Circumcised men are less likely to get yeast infections but are not immune to them.

  • Actually, its about the orgasm. The more you have them the cleaner your insides are naturally. It's like a natural flush. So masturbation works as well, if not better for some, in that dept.
