Have PCOS. Late period. Had yeast infection, painful intercourse. Worried about early menopause

I've been diagnosed with PCOS 10 years ago and a poly about 6 months ago. The past recent months my period has been late 7-10 days and I've been getting a yeast infection before I get my period. I was intimate with my boyfriend and had to stop due to this crazy intense pain.I was having a shower and my clitoris started to hurt. Should I be worried? I'm 31 and worried that I might be going through early menopause.

Thanks for the query.
PCOS can present with symptoms like delayed periods, so the irregularity in your cycles could be due to that. And that may not be premature menopause.
You once consult gynecologist and get examined to find out the persistence of yeast infection and also go for ultrasound.
If she suggests you can go for culture sensitivity of the swab taken from the clitoral area.
After completing the course of medication you may completely get cured with the infection.
In ultrasound the present condition of the PCOS can be noted and if needed you can go for treatment.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
