Candida has been known to be passed via sexual intercourse, and naturally this is through unprotected sex; also, intercourse would have to take place three times or more within a 24 hour period. In addition, in order for a person to contract Candida in this manner, the person would have to have all other aspects present. In other words, the environment would need to be perfect for a yeast overgrowth to begin.
