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.

Answer: Each woman's menstrual cycle is unique and can be influenced by a variety of factors. In general, a yeast infection should not cause a delay in your menstrual cycle; however, depending on the medicine you are using to treat it, you may experience a delay in your menstrual cycle. Common occurrences that can cause a delay in your menstrual period are: hormonal imbalances, certain medications, stress and anxiety, pregnancy, etc. Please see this link for period information.- November 01, 2005 Information taken from Oregon State University's website.

No, douching doesn't effect your period at all - when your period is due is determined by your menstrual cycles, nothing about douching could effect this. FYI douching is unhygenic and unsafe as it effects vaginal pH, strips vaginal tissues or moisture, and can force harmful bacteria further into the vagina - douching increases risks of vaginal infections, TSS, STD's and PID.
