    Can BV cause a late period?
    An_194944 posted:
    I havent had a period since May and i was diagnosed with BV about 2 weeks ago. I was supposed to have my period last wek but it was a no show. I am using a new birth control but have never had a delayed period b/c of birth control. Ive had many urine pregnancy test done and all come back negative. So im wondering can BV cause a late period?
    mamabrat05 responded:
    I should add that i was also diagnosed with an ovarian cyst at the time and have had many cyst in the past. I also have had problems within the last year of my period coming in the middle of a pack of pills, on time and also a month or so late. Im just worried its something serious. I always have a period so this is very scary.
