Can A Yeast Infection Delay My Period?

Can A Yeast Infection Delay My Period?

I am on Tri-Nesa 28 for birth control. I always start my period the Monday after the active pills run out. I developed a yeast infection and am now two days late. Is it common for an active yeast infection to delay or stop my period? I've already taken a pregnancy test that was negative, but I heard they are not always accurate that soon.


Hi there

A similar question was asked on a site where a doctor told the question asker that no, a yeast infection usually does not cause a delay in your period.

What are you taking for the yeast infection? Sometimes certain antibiotics are known to affect your period. Two days is really not a long time. I bet your period will come, but if you have doubts, you can always go see your doctor.

Thank you for your question, and please let us know how you are doing!
