Is it possible to stop myself from getting a yeast infection i might have come in contact with.

Patient : Hello, My boyfriend and i just had sex last night, not even 24 hours ago YET. And i just found out that he has a yeast infection. I never had a yeast infection in my life so i am aware that he got his from another female. Is there any way that i can stop myself from getting the yeast infection as well? i wasn't able to shower right away, i showered probably too many hours later but i made sure to thoroughly clean my vagina. I read online that Vitamin C and a lot of water can help reverse it but i don't know what i can do to stop myself from getting it at all. Please respond, thank you.
Symptoms:  Slight headache since i woke up this morning at 11:30am.
