What Is the difference between UTI and yeast infection?
Yeast infections occur due to an overgrowth of the Candida fungus, causing itching, pain, and odourless white vaginal discharge.

Do I have to get my sexual partner treated as well if I have a yeast infection?
Although sexual transmission of Candida species can occur, most experts do not recommend treatment of yeast infection for your sexual partner if they don’t have any symptoms or risk factors like diabetes, being immunocompromised etc.
