In brief: No
Yeast infections are fungal infections.
The most common is from candida. The other possible infections are from protozoa and bacteria. Viral infections can also occur. Std's are also possible.

In brief: ABSOLUTELY NOT
Yeast is only one cause of vaginal infections, but it is common.
Others are caused by bacteria, like gonorrhea and chlamydia, and bacterial vaginosis. Some viruses also bother the vagina, like herpes and hpv.
