In brief: Possible

I have had women tell me that taking hormones causes them increased yeast infections.
More common, yeast infections can be a result of more direct changes to vaginal environment. New vaginal lubricant, new soap products, changes in diet/exercise/sleep/stress. A great book to assess yeast vaginitis is the v book. You could also consider taking some vaginal probiotics to see if that helps.
