Can You Have Sex When You Are Experiencing Yeast Infection?

According to Cleveland Clinic, when you have a yeast infection, the best thing is to avoid vàginàl intercourse, receiving oral copulation, or putting anything in your female organ until your yeast infection goes away.

If you have a yeast infection, you are likely to encounter a range of uncomfortable symptoms such as female organ irritation, itching, and a white, clumpy, odorless discharge. Yeast infections also trigger swelling and redness in the private organ. In some instances when the female organ is affected you may notice little or no discharge but can still develop tiny cuts around the opening.

The friction from copulation can create even more irritation in those places. This can make both intercourse and urination more painful. It can equally make your infection much harder to heal.

Another reason to stay away from intercourse while you have a yeast infection is that some topical remedies applied to treat them have oil, which can trigger protection to break. Yeast infections generally are not contagious, however, when protection breaks you increase your odds of getting pregnant. For these reasons, the best thing to do is to allow your infection to heal first.
