Candida itself is not an STD. It's a naturally occurring yeast that when overgrown causes yeast infections. If her doc said she has candida, it probably meant she has a yeast infection and has to be treated, and you should probably be treated too, since guys can get it too.

Hi, I checked the STD web site and it says that candida is not sexually transmitted, of course I would suggest you look for yourself all the best silverfruit
