Can using petroleum jelly as lubricant cause a yeast infection?

I had sex last night and the guy used petroleum jelly as lubricant. I woke up this morning and my vagina is really itchy. I think it may be from the jelly. So if anyone knows if using petroleum jelly can give you a yeast infecton or anything else please tell me.

    It will not give you a yeast infection, but it can dry out your vagina and make it itchy. Go take a bath and clean it out very well with warm water.

    if this is you’re first one, you cant be to sure because yeast and BV have almost the same symptoms.

    so if this is you’re first, go to your doctor

    i would like to say its a yeast infection, but again you cant be to sure. go to the drugstore and buy monistat if the symptoms don’t go away..it’s something else

    I heard oil based lubricants should not be used on vagina.
