Can having more than one sex partner cause a woman's menstrual cycle to be off?

No, having multiple sexual partners has no impact on the menstrual cycle at all.The menstrual cycle is the reproductive cycle, it is controlled by hormonal changes within the reproductive organs and so sex does not change the cycle (unless the person falls pregnant). The menstrual cycle can't tell how many sexual partners a person has, nor would there be any reason for the menstrual cycle to change if a person has multiple sexual partners.

The full menstrual cycle is usually counted from the first day you bleed(day 1), through when it's stopped, until you start to bleed again.

Not all vaginal bleeding is menstruation either, some women can experience mid-cycle bleeding due to hormonal imbalance.
