Not true: Gonorrhea, chlamydia, and yeast are three different kinds of infection. Neither of them causes the others. The only possible connection is that, if you are given antibiotics for gonorrhea or chlamydia, antibiotics can often cause a yeast infection.

STD: Chlamydia is one of the std's and you can get it from one of your single or multiple sex partners who have it. Your candidiasis probably started because of other predisposing factors like pregnancy, diabetes, use of steroids and bs antibiotics.

Yeast: No it is not common, unless your partner is cheating. But you need a chlamydia test to rule out chlamydia.
