This is probably obvious to everyone, but: DON'T USE ANY SOAP to wash your crotch (sorry, that's the word I use :]) or your pubic hair or even your bum. That was the key for me... unfortunately, I wasn't thinking when I took a shower 1 1/2 weeks ago, and scrubbed myself all over --> presto! yeast infection.... doh! On the subject of post-coital washing... my DH has to wash every time after sex, so that he doesn't develop one.
