Be­fore you take this as a sign that he’s not a keeper…are you to­tally sure they’re yeast in­fec­tions? “Not ev­ery itch, dis­charge, or dis­com­fort is a yeast in­fec­tion,” says ob-gyn Alyssa Dweck, MD. It’s more likely that you’re re­act­ing to a con­dom, lube, or even his sperm— check with your doc, says Dr. Dweck. Avoid con­doms with sper­mi­cide, which can up­set ph and cause red­ness and itch­ing, and use only wa­ter or sil­i­conebased lubes. If it is a yeast is­sue, tak­ing a daily probiotic can pre­vent ex­tra yeast from form­ing. With a few tweaks, you should be able to re­turn to your reg­u­larly sched­uled bon­ing.
