Do a yeast infection and a Urinary Tract Infection have the same symptoms?

What are these symptoms?, and if they are not alike what are the differences?

Yeast infections can leave traces in the urine, as yeast will also populate the outside of the vagina and be flushed off by urine. The stick that shows whether or not you have a UTI measures the pH of your urine (the acidity), and as a UTI gives off an acidic reading (negative on the pH scale), yeast gives off a basic reading (positive on the pH scale), which throws it off.

Bladder infections are just that- Infections of the bladder. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are infections of the entire tract, the bladder, the urethra (the tube through which the urine flows) and sometimes the ureters (tubes connecting the kidneys to the bladder) and the kidneys as well. UTIs will cause the feeling of having to urinate frequently, as well as (sometimes) burning, stinging, or itching during urination, and a strong odor from the urine.

    Yes they can. you would experience painful urination and also the urine may smell a bit foul. You may also experience seeing some blood while you wipe. Good luck!

    No Way. Yeast infections cause cottage cheese like discharge and a lot of itching. A UTI hurts when you pee. It is an uncomfortable pressure in your lower abdomen. Usually no itching involved.

    NOT AT ALL.

    Yeast Infection:

    Red, Itchy, Swollen Vagina
    Cottage Cheese discharge
    Yeasty Smell
    Burning

    Urinary Tract Infection:

    Urgency to urinate even if you just peed a minute before.
    Sitting down to pee and nothing coming out except for one drop.
    Urinating Blood.
    Hot fire/burning sensation while urinating, comparable to shoving a steaming knife up your urethra.
    Urinating clumps of "skin" or "mucous"

    If you had a UTI, trust me, you would KNOW it. I wanted to kill myself when I had it. I was terrified to pee because it hurt so bad.

    Usually with a UTI, it hurts when you pee. With a yeast infection, there is major itching and usually a white/yellowish discharge.

    urinary tract infection sometimes has a burning sensation when you urinate and also feels like you still have to go even right after you went to the bathroom. Yeast infection is yeast overload alot of itching and a bad discharge with an off odor

    no they are completely different. a urinary tract infection causes extreme pain during urination. you also will have blood in your urine and you will only be able to go a little at a time. yeast infection causes itching and burning, and abnormal discharge.

  11. gardengirl says:

    NO: the symptoms of a UTI (urinary tract infection) are trouble urinating- feeling like you have to "go" really bad- but hardly anything comes out. This can be a constant feeling, too as the infection gets worse. If left untreated, you will not be able to "go" at all and will need to be catheterized.
    A yeast infection is terrible itching and foul odor

    A yeast infecton has symptoms of clumpy discharge, redness around the vagina, and vaginal itchig. A yeast infection is a not really an infection but an overgrowth of bacteria. A Urinary Tract Infection orUTI, occurs when too much bacteria enters the urinary tract. Symptoms of a UTI include fever, burning while peeing, and sometimes lower back pain. If left untreated a UTI can bcome a kidney infection which is much more serious. UTI’s are treated with antibiotics. Yeast infections are generally treated with antifungal creams. Make sure you go to your doctor either way

    >>With yeast infection you will have a discharge of some sort. And a strong odor. Perhaps itching as well. If treating with non-prescription meds only use the 7-day vaginal creams like GynoLotrimin. Others will not do the job.
    >>For urinary tract infection you would have an urge to pee frequently and it most likely burns when you do. At some point you feel you need to pee and cannot. Very uncomfortable. To treat this you must get some antibiotics prescribed by your doctor.

    no mam it does not. But if you have ever had a yeast or urinary infection before not hard to distinguish between the two. Urinary tract hurts very much and you can only urinate very little.When u do its painful to vaginal area.Yeast infection can hurt if not taken care of soon, but itches, very thick cloudy urine and white clumpy like discharge.You will most likely have a little smell. If you have either one drink plenty of water. Stay away from sugary drinks and sodas. Buy d-mannose without fructose or sugar in it,has to be 100% d-mannose . Get some Azo or urinary tract MDS from pharmacy until u get to doctor -for urinary tract.Get mono stat and eat plenty of yogurt for yeast infection and stay away rom perfumed products and strong douches.
