  • I am not sure but you should ask your doctor....I am pretty sure it's possible that males get yeast infections. Actually my son had one when he was a baby somehow. Looked like bad diaper rash on his bottom. He may need to be treated for it

  • It could be the extra hormones (every pregnancy is different) or, if you're still having sex with you boyfriend, it could be coming from him. You very well can pass it back and forth, but on a guy its called Jock itch...does he scratch a lot there lately??

  • Your lover CAN pass on a yeast infection to you. Maybe he should be checked? It is entirely possible for being preggo that your body is just out of whack from the hormones and will go back to normal after the baby is born.

  • next time you do the treatment, don't have sex for awhile afterwards and wait to see if it comes back. If it does, you may need a stronger anti-yeast infection med. There is this one tiny pill you can take that will get rid of it. i forget what its called, but my doc gave it to me after I had my second cause I had a HORRIBLY yeast infection. Ask your doctor about it. If nothing else, its easier than cream meds.

  • My doctor gave me a prescription specifically for a yeast infection and it took it away in 2 days. its two pills for two days. took it away like magic. ask your doctor if she/he can prescribe something for it.
