Yes, of course. Once the bacterial enter into your uterus, yeast infection could influence your period.

That's why you need in time treatment once you found you have it. To avoid the serious problem caused by it, you could try herbal supplement "fuyan pill" from Wuhan Dr. Lee's TCM Clinic, or you could also try some antibiotics, it depends on your personal situation.

No, yeast infections cannot cause your period to be late.Menstruation is controlled by your menstrual cycles, a domino effect of hormonal changes between your brain and reproductive organs, your menstrual cycle should continue as normal whether you have a yeast infection or not.
