Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I can understand your concerns.

Vitamin b complex generally never affects menstrual cycle. This is because its a water soluble vitamin and any excess just gets passed out in urine. Also it has no known effect on menses.

Anyways let me know the brand name of the vitamines or the exact constituents of the product so that I am better able to help.
