Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher with another frequently asked question. Does my boyfriend have to be treated for a
yeast infection if we had sex and I was infected? Well, it depends on what you really call treatment,
but I certainly would make sure that you both observe good hygiene with sex. It’s a clever
idea to do that. So after sex, for example, particularly if he’s uncircumcised, make sure
that he roles the skin of the penis back and observes very good hygiene. Usually with good hygiene it’s not usually
a problem. Try some coconut oil for lubrication, which is quite a good idea if you have a vaginal
yeast infection and observe good hygiene. That way it will be easier all around. Tea
tree oil products are often quite good to wash after sex, so go to the toilet, douching
is also quite good for yourself and using water solable tea tree oil as a douche is
a clever idea because it’s going to help to get on top of your yeast infection and help
you to stop spreading it to your boyfriend and then him back to you again. So I certainly would recommend that approach.
Tea tree oil products and coconut oil are two good ways for you to reduce what I call
pass the parcel and moving it back and forth from one partner to another. So I hope that answers your question. Thank
you for your question.
