Q: Can a yeast infection cause urinary urgency and frequency?

I have had recent urgency (mild) and frequency.  I am able to empty my bladder.  Haven't really increased my amount of fluid intake.  Normal blood sugar.  No weight loss or increased thirst.  Negative urinalysis. (yesterday) Mild vaginal burning, though I don't think I have a yeast infection.  (Should I still try treating myself for it?) Can a yeast infection cause a bad bladder?

Hi Marie,


I know it has been a long time since this post, but we are hoping you found some relief. 


Generally it is best not to self treat unless you are positive of your symptoms.  Did the doctor check for a yeast infection in addition to the UTI?


Here are some links you might find useful if this occurs again:
