Q. Can oral sex cause yeast infections or bladder infections? Can antibiotics or anti-fungal drugs help? I have yeast infection symptoms such as redness and itching every time I receive oral sex from my boyfriend. Occasionally I also get bladder infections. My doctor gave me Diflucan and antibiotics. But the redness and itching keep coming back, and it does not prevent bladder infections. What should I do?
A. Oral sex can cause recurrent yeast infections and/or bladder infections if your boyfriend has yeast infections. Like I indicated in previous articles, man and woman have “equal opportunity” to contract yeast infections. You both need to be treated; otherwise, you two can pass yeast infections back and forth to each other.
Antibiotics may stop bladder infections temporarily, but they cause yeast overgrowth and makes the situation worse. Diflucan or any anti-fungal drugs are chemicals that clog your liver and kidneys. They may temporarily inhibit the symptoms, but do not cleanse the toxins.
Here are my recommendations:
- Herbal Therapy:
Take our Herbal Detox program: Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea, to remove excess yeasts, parasites, and toxins. You and your boyfriend need to take the full dosage until you are symptom-free. Afterwards, stay on the maintenance dosage for prevention.
- Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:
Try to adhere to a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals. My clients call it “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments”. It may be a tall order, because most people are used to the Standard American Diet (SAD) that is loaded with no-no’s. To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.
- Good Hygiene:
Abstain from oral sex for a while. Remember, both of you need to be treated. When you are ready to try it again, make sure that both of you take a shower, brush your teeth, and scrape your tongues. Mouthwash is recommended. A good hygiene can minimize the chances for you to contract yeast and/or bladder infections. Have you heard of the expression, “Being clean is sexy”?
- Topical Treatment:
To get some temporary relief, use a cotton ball soaked with Witch Hazel to dab on affected areas. When the solution is dry, smear Vitamin E oil on it. That will stop the itching temporarily. Make sure you wear surgical gloves to prevent spreading.
- Stress Management:
Not everyone receiving oral sex will contract yeast and/or bladder infections. Infections occur when your immune system is weak. The above regimens will strengthen your immune system from a physical perspective. You will also need to remove your mental toxins as well. Read my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing. It gives you a few tools to manage your stress effectively. You can also consider private consultation sessions with myself.
