I've not heard of this before.

If you are getting yeast infections every month it could be that infection itself is not being eliminated in the first place or it could be that you have a weakened immune system or something else.

It is not normal to get a monthly yeast infection.

Oh no yeast infections are not mormal every month. I used to get them all the time. You have to see a Naturopathic Doctor or look up what consists of a Yeast free diet and stick to it for a month or so. Also your boyfriend should be treated for the yeast infection. He could be passing it back to you. Get him to apply the cream twice a day for four days.

Yes, you can definitely get a yest infection from a marajuana user. Everytime i have sex with my hubby after he smokes a joint i get irritation and burning in the vagina. Once the drug is out of his system, i don't experience the symptoms of a yeast infection. Maybe marajuana releases a chemical that you and i are allergic to.

Marijuana and Yeast Infections
This is happening to me as well. I thought maybe he passed along an STD, but I noticed in the past that smoking marijuana made me sick. Now that I am having sex with him (we've been dating for a month), depending on how much he smokes, I get a yeast infection EVERY TIME. So, it MUST be the marijuana.

Also, I heard that men do not get penile yeast infections, is this true?

yeast infecions and marijuana use
Absolutely. This was happening to me and almost every month my period would clear it up. My step daughter said the same thing and and also said that when she smoked it she would not get it. I tried this and found that this did minimize the itchy burn but did nothing about the other sympoms (discharge and odor). There should be a medcal research team working on this and it should be a valid reason for divorce in states because I am sure it happens to men as well when they are non users and their wife is. This is a health risk for everyone

Yeast infection
So, bottom line, smoking Mary Jane can cause a yeast infection in women?
