Candida Question #34 Can A Vaginal Yeast Infection Be Passed To A Man And Cause A Prostate Infection?

Yes it can. It is possible and I’ve certainly seen it in the clinic on several occasions. It’s not as common as many people think it is, but it certainly does occur.

While Candida albicans is not necessarily a sexually-transmitted disease, it can be passed from male to female and female to male. And I have had some instances, which I’ve written one of these case studies in my book, Candida Crusher, regarding a 27-year-old male from a New Zealand rock band, a drummer, with quite a serious prostate infection. When we had his girlfriend checked out by the doctor, she had a rampant Candida infection. We eventually got rid of his yeast infection over a period of time through dietary change and also some dietary supplements helped eradicate the yeast infection.

So precautions need to be taken with hygiene. And it is certainly possible to move Candida around through sexual activity. So for females with a vaginal yeast infection, I would recommend that you take precautions in a relationship with your partner to stop the spread of Candida.

Candida Question #29 Is There A Way To Prevent Vaginal Yeast Infection?

Can a vaginal yeast infection be prevented? What’s the point in treating vaginal infections and overcoming them if you keep getting them back again? How can you stop them? How can you prevent them recurring?

This is question I do get asked from time to time. My reply to that one is try and look and understand the causes of vaginal infections. And a big cause is taking antibiotics, particularly recurring antibiotics.

Some of the causes and things that you may want to address if you want to prevent infections are to wear 100 percent cotton underclothing, look very carefully at tight-fitting clothing that obviously is going to keep a lot more heat and moisture in that particular area. Dry yourself properly and carefully after having a shower or a bath, using a hair dryer is not a stupid idea. Allow your vagina to breathe, so sit back on a chair and don’t cross your legs so much. The other thing is to be careful with sporting events. Make sure you cool and dry your body down after sporting events. Avoid feminine sprays and avoid scented toilet paper and certain types of deodorant tampons.

These are all little hints and tips that will help you from continuing on with a vaginal yeast infection. But the big one, watch out for antibiotics in particular. You’ll find a lot more information about my diet and other ways to prevent vaginal infections in my book, Candida Crusher, and also if you have a look at

Candida Question #28 Causes of Recurring Vaginal Yeast Infection?

In my experience, many women get a recurring infection. If you keep getting a recurring infection, you need to ask yourself, what’s going on? What haven’t I done that I should be doing? Have I addressed the cause or am I just treating a local symptom?

Most all cases can be fully resolved. It’s very important to treat this problem when it’s local and it’s acute rather than letting it get out of hand and wait until it’s severe and chronic. The more you let something go, the harder and longer it is to get on top of it.

It’s important to get checked out by your doctor to make sure you haven’t got diabetes or any underlying problem. So, it’s important for you to have a pelvic exam and a smear test to determine if there are no other issues affecting the vaginal region or the pelvic region.

But if you have been diagnosed by your gynecologist or doctor as having a yeast infection and you can’t get on top of it, I’d like you to read Chapter 5 of my book, Candida Crusher. This particular information has helped thousands of women recover from chronic vaginal infections that they couldn’t get on top of for years. In some cases, it can take as long as nine months or even a year to recover. But I have never found a case yet that can’t fully recover with the right treatment.

So that’s what I think you should do if you have a recurring problem. Get yourself checked out and if it has proven to be a chronic yeast infection, have a good think about my book, and particularly Chapter 5.

Thank you.
