Post Oral Sex and Yeast Infections

When people say you can catch a yeast infection from having oral sex performed, do they mean from the saliva? or is it because the person has thrush in their mouth and pass it to the genitals this way?

Thanks.

I believe it's from the saliva, and just general bacteria in the mouth, does NOT mean the person has thrush. Also if your man is a beer drinker, you're more apt to get a yeast infection. I get infections after oral and always make my hubby brush his teeth and gargle first. Some one suggested he get acidiphillus chewables and chew them before giving oral. Haven't tried it yet. I haven't even had oral since February when I had my worst infection yet.

Damn female problems!!

You can get thrush in the mouth and throat - it's called oral thrush (surprisingly enough :P ). Receiving oral sex from a person with oral thrush can most certainly give you vaginal thrush. A vagina that has thrush can also pass the thrush along to penises that it comes into contact with, and vice versa. Oh so easy to get, and oh so annoying!

If you have a problem with getting yeast infections via oral then the person giving oral should see the doc too to get checked. Also why not just use a dental dam and eliminate the worry altogether?

If a person had thrush wouldn't they be having problems with their mouth and if so what would it be?

And what is dental dam?

thanks.

Symptoms of oral thrush are "white, cream or yellow spots in the mouth. The spots are slightly raised. If you scrape off these spots they leave small wounds that bleed slightly...thrush can cause an uncomfortable burning sensation in mouth or throat" (If you want to know more about it, just do a internet search on "oral thrush" - heaps of info)

A dental dam is a small sheet of latex (it's made out of the same thing that condoms are). The sheet of latex is held over the vagina/anus of a person receiving oral sex to prevent spread of infection between mouth and vagina/anus. You can buy dental dams from some stores, and some new dental dams have an adhesive strip to hold it in place, so you don't have to hold it there yourself. You can also make a dental dam by cutting up an unused condom. Basically, using a dental dam for protection during vaginal or anal oral sex is the same as using a condom on a penis for protection during a head job.
