Complications

There are few serious complications with vaginal yeast infections:

  • Recurrent infections
  • Secondary infections caused by itching

Partners and Re-infection

While men do not generally get yeast infections, it is advisable to avoid sex or use condoms to prevent irritation of the penis (which has been reported in 12-15% of men). Unfortunately for women, fully 40-45% of women have more than one yeast infection in their lifetime.
