Girlfriend allergic to me?

Patient

Q: About five years ago I had a girlfriend who was prone to yeast infections. She told me that she had not had the problem until we started dating. Recently we saw each other again And exchanged oral sex. Immediately after, she said she could feel the first signs of a yeast infection. Sure enough, it was confirmed the next day. According to her this is the first one she has had in close to two years. It seems like whenever I touch her vagina she gets sick. Could there be something wrong with me? Could the biological chemistry Between us just not mix? I'm very upset about this because I love this woman and it would be devistating to me if there is something about me that makes her sick. I understand what causes yeast infections and all that, I just don't understand why it happens with us so often.
What do you think, doc?
