Yeast Infection Contagious?

I noticed some white cottage cheese type discharge from a girl I had sex with about a week ago. I figured it was a yeast infection. Is it possible that she could spread the infection to me? What would be some symptoms if I did catch it from her? I am circumsised. This may sound stupid but I'd like to know if anyone can help.

Re: Yeast Infection Contagious?

It can be passed on, if you gave her oral you could be at risk of mouth thrush. It isn't too common for men to get symptoms of thrush/yeast infection, however you could possibly be carrying it - go get tested just in case, but be prepared for swabs I am afraid. If she is going to be a perminant partner, or if you are going to be having sex with her again make sure she is cleared up too...it's not exactly polite to have sex with someone when you are suffering from an infection.
