how can you tell the difference between a bladder infection and a yeast infection?

Yeast infection?: A bladder infection can be caused by a strain of bacterium or yeast. If the urine culture grows out yeast, it is a bladder infection caused by the yeast. If the urine culture does not reveal a yeast, there is no yeast in the urine.
