No, a yeast infection will have no impact on your menstrual cycle.

When you menstruate is determined by your menstrual cycle, a domino effect of hormonal changes between your brain and reproductive organs. Yeast infections are nothing more than an overgrowth of naturally occurring yeast within your vagina and/or vulva. Yeast infections impact on a different part of your body than your brain and reproductive organs (uterus and ovaries).

No, stress will not cause a yeast infection.A yeast infection is an overgrowth in yeast, given as we are in the women's health section of this web site I will assume we're talking about vaginal or vulva yeast infections. The female genitals naturally contain yeast which are kept under control by an acidic pH inside the vagina and by 'good' bacteria that produce hydrogen peroxide to kill excessive yeast. Stress will not change your vaginal flora so in turn stress will not cause a yeast infection.Stress may cause yeast infections.
