  • Sure, but use protection or you could give it to your partner... I'd don't think SO would like the itchy too much.

  • pretty sure you can lol, but i dont think a doctor would say you should... think you could transfer your infection to your partner.. but a better question would be why would you want to lol..

  • Doctor says you shouldn't and if you do he should be treated as well. Now if you have an itch that needs to be scratched tell him to wear a condom. Lol! Sorry had to!

  • Not a good idea, men can become chronic carriers and reinfect you with the yeast.
