Yeast infections itch (some very badly), and can burn sometimes. The best way is to go to a doctor to make sure it is just a yeast infection, not a STD.

You may get discharge(if you are 16 and younger it might just be puberty) also it may burn when you pee and itchy private. or burning when you DONT pee.

Every woman will experience a yeast infection in different ways and for some symptoms may be worse than others.

Yeast infection symptoms can range from mild to moderate and include:
- Itching and irritation in the vagina and at the entrance to the vagina (vulva)
- A burning sensation, especially during intercourse or while urinating
- Redness and swelling of the vulva
- Vaginal pain and soreness
- Thick, white, odor-free vaginal discharge with a cottage cheese appearance

And if you have above symptoms, it is mostly like yeast infection. However, if you are not sure, you could consult online doctors, like Wuhan Dr. Lee's TCM Clinic for help.

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.
