In brief: Yes

First consider it might not be yeast as conditions, such as bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis, can cause vaginal symptoms similar to those of a yeast infection.
However elevated blood sugar, low estrogen , corticosteroid use and speracides among other non antibiotic things can cause a yeast infection.
