Both possible: Although simple vaginal yeast infections should generally not delay your period, there are dozens of reasons why this may occur, including just being upset that you have yeast infection, or that you have not yet developed a stable menstrual pattern. Would not worry. This should straighten itself out without treatment.

Delayed period: If you are not pregnant, then this common event in younger females may just be about stress, extreme dieting or extreme exercise, hormone imbalances, or obesity among other reasons.

I have a yeast infection and I used Monistat one day treatment Monday night. Tuesday afternoon my period started. Will the Monistat still work?

Yes: The medication should still be effective - however, Monistat does fail about 1 out of 3 times regardless of the timing of the period.
