In brief: Concurrent infection

It is definitely possible to have both a yeast infection and BV since a simple shift in vaginal pH can lead to an overgrowth of bacteria, causing BV and having a yeast infection or even treating one is enough to cause this shift.

In brief: Yes

You may have had BV first and it was not treated adequately.
I have seen this happen. Bv is treated orally with Metronidazole orally or uing a vaginal cream.
