Answer to your Health Question

Question: My wife has frequent yeast infections. Could we be passing it back and forth between us? Jeffrey

Answer: Dear Jeffrey,

It is rare to transmit yeast infections from one partner to another. The following are tips to prevent future yeast infections:

- Avoid tight and synthetic fiber clothes
- Wipe from front to back after using toilet
- Don't use tampons with fragrances
- Eat plenty of yogurt (rich in bacteria that will normalize the pH balance of the vagina)
