Can yeast infection cause such bleeding?

User Profile
Last month during my period I was fairly uncomfortable. I experienced itching and a slight discomfort when peeing, only to discover something like a sore on my skin. Against my better judgement, I believed it was some irritation caused by pads so with cream it went away along with the itching. I must add that before my period I had to take antibiotics due health problems (doctor's prescription)

It seemed the problem was gone. The period this month was normal and there were no signs of itching. But now, two weeks later, it returned. Slight swelling and itching and a strange white-colored lumpy discarge. But it's even worse. Even though my period was just 2 weeks ago, i woke up with red stains of blood on my underwear. Not a large amount. The blood has absolutely no clot and is a normal fluid red.

I am not sexually active for now so I am sure it is not a STI. However I am really worried. Could it be yeast infection? Can yeast infection cause such bleeding?

Welcome here.
You have definitely an yeast infection recurrence which is due to the antibiotic course you had.
It could cause bleeding if you scratch inside or if there is sloughing of the white plaques.
Just apply Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex or
Gynezol or Femstat vaginal creams,that are typically placed inside the vagina with an applicator to kill off the yeast that cause yeast infections. These are all OTC available and use them at bedtime for 5 nights.
