Separate infections: Chlamydia and vaginal yeast infections are entirely different; neither causes the other. Both are very common, so simultatnous infection with both is not rare. The highest priority is treatment of your chlamydia. Your current or recent sex partner(s) also need treatment and ideally should also be tested for chlamydia. Good luck!
