Ureaplasma: This organism is one potential cause of non-gonococcal urethritis, often a sexually transmitted disease. The use of antibiotics to treat this can result in secondary yeast infection (vulvovaginitis), but the Ureaplasma itself does not cause yeast in the urine (and in this case the yeast is probably coming from vaginal secretions contaminating the urine specimen).

Men can also become secondarily infected with yeasts from antibiotics but this is much less common than in women.
