Men and Yeast Infections
Can a Prostate Infection be transmitted?
Can a Male’s PSA level become elevated due to a prostate yeast infection?
Can I have Sex during a Prostate Infection?
Can there be a Yeast Infection in the Male Urethra?
Yes, a female partner can contract a urinary tract infection and worse (actual kidney infections) from a male partner who has prostatitis. I have seen this in several cases over the years and it usually starts after the couple began to have sex when the male had a history of a prostate infection.
Yes, it most certainly can. The prostate serum antigen (PSA) level will only reveal an elevation if a man has an enlarged prostate, whether it be from an infection or from cancer. A Urologist will generally tell you that an elevated PSA reading will not be due to a yeast infection, but I have seen this to be the case in many males over the years, and once their yeast infection was successfully treated the PSA reading went back to normal.
You can but please bear in mind that you are at a high risk of potentially infecting your partner with a yeast infection. You may wish to use condoms.
Yes there can be, a yeast infection can commonly affect the male genital region including the skin in and around the penis and scrotom, the prostate and the urethra, although it is more common for the prostate to be affected (prostatitis) than the urethra.
