How long should i wait before having sex with my husband after a uti and yeast infection?
I had an yeast infection and uti at the time. Want to the Physician and got medication for both and everything seems find now. And my husband can’t wait anymore.
If you use condoms you do not have to wait at all. The danger lies in passing the infection to your husband who will later reinfect you. Even though this is rare (not impossible) with the yeast infection it is quite common with the UTIs.
It is actually quite important that he be checked for the infection and treated if necessary before resuming unprotected sex with him. Most of what the other people answering your question is correct in that you need to make sure that the infection is gone before resuming unprotected sex.
Candida albicans, the same type of yeast that causes vaginal yeast infections can cause a condition called jock itch in males and sometimes females. In this way it can be passed back and forth between partners. Jock itch is external and can be eliminated with Selsun, Monistat or Clotrimazole. Candida albicans can also invade the male urinary tract and cause a condition called male yeast infection which causes itching at the tip of the penis.
