  • I've never heard of a yeast infection having that effect on a man. I'm guessing something else but could be wrong. See if you can get the appointment bumped up.

  • Yeast doesn't usually cause irritation to the penis just from sex. It does sound like an infection. Unless you have symptoms of PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease), which is lower abdominal pain and bloating then don't worry too much, it's most likely something that the GYN can take care of with a prescription.

  • If it spread to your husband it's probably got nothing to do with the Mirena or a yeast infection. Neither one of those typically result in pain and redness to the male from sex. Sounds like some other kind of infection. I'd call you gyn. in the morning and let them know your symptoms are spreading to your husband, they might get you in a lot sooner. In the mean time I wouldn't insert anything into the vagina because it will likely make the symptoms worse for you.
