Can I have a yeast infection while on my period? I had some irritation and itching 1-2days b4 I started my period.

Yes. You can have a yeast infection while you are on a period. Most of them start premenstrually and then if not treated may cause symptoms like itching. Not all yeast in the vagina causes an infection or symptoms. Many women have yeast in their vagina and have no symptoms at all.

Maybe not yeast... Vinegar doesn't work against yeast infections (or anything else); if the itching improved with a vinegar "bath" it was probably just a coincidence. You may or may not have a yeast infection; other things also can cause genital itching. See a doctor for professional diagnosis and recommended treatment. Good luck! Read more...

Yeast elsewhere? If you have a red patch of skin that itches beneath your breasts, you could have a yeast dermatitis there too. Your short period is probably unrelated to these other issues.
