No. Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of a yeast that naturally exists in the vagina. Since you already have that yeast in you so you can't be "infected" by anyone else.

In fact the yeast, Candida, can be spread. That is how infants often get it - by putting things in their mouth. As someone who has dealt with massive yeast infections while nursing both my children, I can attest to the fact that the infection can be spread. I'm not positive that you can catch it from a toilet seat, but there are other ways to get it besides plain overgrowth and other places to get it besides the vagina.
