Candida albicans, the bacteria that causes a yeast infection is present in everyone, both men and women, even if they are perfectly healthy. The problem arises when the Candida has an overgrowth, which leads to a yeast infection.

It is definitely possible for men to get a yeast infection and then pass it onto you. The penis is vulnerable a yeast infection, though chances are significantly lower than that of a woman's.

It is possible that the man did not sleep with anyone else as sexual intercourse is only one of the many other possible causes of yeast infection in men. The man may have a weakened immune system, or took antibiotics that killed the good bacteria that are needed to keep the yeast infection from manifesting. Penile yeast infection can also happen with the use of condoms that contain nonxynol-9, so check the label to see if the chemical is present.

Simply put, the man may have contracted the yeast infection without sexual intercourse. It may very well be the other causes.

To add onto the facts, 75% of women will get a yeast infection at least once in their lifetime, so it may be possible that you have contracted it on your own without the man playing any part in it.

Can you get a yeast infections from using the same toilet as someone who has a yeast infection?

No. Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of a yeast that naturally exists in the vagina. Since you already have that yeast in you so you can't be "infected" by anyone else. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In fact the yeast, Candida, can be spread. That is how infants often get it - by putting things in their mouth. As someone who has dealt with massive yeast infections while nursing both my children, I can attest to the fact that the infection can be spread. I'm not positive that you can catch it from a toilet seat, but there are other ways to get it besides plain overgrowth and other places to get it besides the vagina.

Can a yeast infection be cured if you are on your period?

No, a yeast infection can't be cured by menstruation. If anything a yeast infection may be made worse by menstruation because during menstruation the blood changes the pH of the vagina so it is more favourable to harmful bacteria and yeast. Using certain menstrual products such as tampons or commercial pads can also increase risks of infection, commercial pads especially can cause yeast infections as they prevent air-flow to the genitals so making the area warm and wet so perfect for yeast growth. If you have a yeast infection it's best to seek treatment, confirm diagnosis with a doctor ideally (especially if you're sexually active, in case it's something else), and then you can use over-the-counter yeast infection treatment.
