do you get cramps with a yeast infection?

Not usually: Typically a vaginal yeast infection causes itching, redness, burning and a thick discharge, sometimes like cottage cheese. You might be having cramps for a totally unrelated reason such as heavy periods with clots, fibroids, other infections, pregnancy, etc.
