Does irregular sleep cycles has something to do with vaginal yeast or bacteria infections? how are the ways we can prevent it?

Not to my knowledge: There is no established relationship between sleep and such infections. However, lack of sleep can certainly affect one's immune status overall, possibly allowing more susceptibility to infections in general.

As above: No irregular sleep cycle has nothing to do with it , ask u physician about the reasons for these infection and how u can avoid them.
