If you keep getting a yeast infection after sex you need to stop sex until you are completely cured. It’s the best way, because sex can transfer the infection to your partner, and once that happens, it can be transferred back and forth. You’re then in a vicious cycle of yeast infection - sex - yeast infection etc. A proper cure is then very hard to achieve.
A condom doesn’t always prevent these recurring yeast infections. Some spermicides can actually help trigger an infection, and, latex can cause allergies, resulting in inflammation that is ideal for infection.
Stopping sex altogether until the infection has been completely eliminated is definitely the best solution. But any treatment must address the root cause and underlying conditions, not just the symptoms of yeast infection.
A fungus called Candida Albicans is the cause of yeast infections. It resides in us naturally, but is kept under control by our body’s ‘good’ bacteria. But under certain conditions it can ‘overgrow’ resulting in a yeast infection.
The following are examples of the type of conditions that can act as a ‘trigger’; antibiotics, steroids, pregnancy, diabetes, contraception, poor diet, and lowered immune system, etc.
Drug-based topical creams and pessaries etc., can be effective in getting rid of yeast infection symptoms. However, that’s all they can do, they don’t address the root cause and underlying conditions. This is why many women (and men) get a yeast infection when they continue sex after apparently being ‘cured’.
The other option you have is to go for completely natural cures for yeast infection, without expensive drugs and their side effects.
And this is what more and more sufferers are doing around the world, by using a more holistic approach to a permanent cure. And many have reported remarkably fast, permanent results
