STDs, or sexually transmitted diseases, can be transferred from partner to partner during intimate times. Many people don't view yeast infections as STDs, and they technically aren't. You can, however, share your yeast infection with your partner, causing more pain and irritation. If one partner has an infection, both should seek treatment. You can prevent intercourse-related infections of this nature by observing hygiene rituals before and after your encounters.
Yeast infections can be passed easily from person to person, even through kissing, and it happens quite a bit after intercourse so be careful.
