A member asked:

Is it possible to have a yeast infection and an uti at the same time and it be cured by the same antibiotic?

You could have both a yeast infection and a uti. The treatment is different, unless the yeast infection is also causing the uti symptoms, which can happen. Get checked to get the right treatment for both, please.

Women can have urinary tract infection and vaginal yeast infections at the same time. However, there is overlap in symptoms, so you might have one or the other, not both. UTI and yeast respond to entirely different kinds of antibiotics. Neither one will treat the other. See your doctor to sort this out. Good luck.
