Perhaps your partner is a carrier of Candida and you are getting thrush. You could have a swab to check.

Best wishes

Apparently men also get thrush and infections like we do. I used to suffer with the same thing, but the doc siad that there is no symptoms for men showing that they have it, but they do, and they can get some pills from a doc to kill the virus. Its a pitty I dont have the name on me but it is also the same range as canestin for women they have somthing for men as well.

Hope this helps.
