No, vaginal infections are an overgrowth in naturally occurring yeast or bacteria in the vagina so have no effect on your period. Your menstrual period and flow are controlled by your menstrual cycle, which is controlled by hormones in your body. The only thing to consider is that if you have a vaginal infection you shouldn't use tampon when menstruating.

Vaginal infections definitely can cause your period to act up. Sometimes you'll experience a 3 week cycle, then a 5, then maybe a 4... You should talk to your Doctor if this problem persists, as it may be an indication of a serious infection or disease.
