In brief: Trichomoniasis
Trichomoniasis (or “trich”) is a very common sexually transmitted disease (std) that is caused by infection with a protozoan parasite called trichomonas vaginalis.
Although symptoms of the disease vary, most women and men who have the parasite cannot tell they are infected. The disease is not related to yeast.

In brief: No
Different infections, but both common enough that they can easily coexist or succeed each other.

What I have often seen is that the main infection gets treated, leaving the other "room to grow"
