In brief: Not likely

Vaginal yeast infections are common.
Normal immune system will prevent invasive blood borne infection.

In brief: Never heard of it

I haven't heard of a vaginal yeast infection causing other problems, such as yeast in the blood.
I imagine that could happen in a very immunosuppressed person, such as in aids, etc.
