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. A yeast infection is just a vaginal infection, when naturally occurring yeast in your vagina overgrows and causes irritation - just treat the infection. If your period is late it is due to something else, maybe stress or ill health but if sexually active pregnancy is a possibility too.

Yes, a yeast infection can be related to a late period, but it's not necessarily the cause. (It could be hormone changes that cause the yeast infection AND the late period.) Before treating the yeast infection, take a pregnancy test, just in case! If you are pregnant, it would be best to discuss with a doctor before using anything over the counter -- some types of yeast infection medicine explicitly say not for use while pregnant, but you won't know that until you read the fine print inside after purchase!

Also, irregular periods are something you might want to discuss with your doctor, if you have been regular up until now.
