Possibly: I would need to know what type of vaginal infection you have. There are all different types of vaginal infections & only some are sexually transmitted. So, you could have a vaginal infection (yeast or bacterial vaginosis) and not have a more serious sexually transmitted infection. Consult with your gyn to discover which one it is.

Not an STI: The common vaginal infections like yeast and bacterial vaginitis are not sexually ttransmitted so it is entirely normal and possible to have one. The microbes that cause these problems are usually present in small numbers in the vagina, but if conditions are right they can crop up in large numbers and cause symptoms. It is a good idea to let your gyn see you to make and exact diagnosis.
