Stress? adult content

Can I be stressed enough to miss my period, or at least be a week late and not realize I'm stressed?

I have been really stressed before and it has NEVER caused me to miss my period. I am now 5 days late.

I can't be pregnant because my boyfriend and I havent done anymore then kiss.

So am I just stressed?

  • It definitely could be. So don't worry about it anymore. Relax.

  • Probably, but I know for a fact that sometimes our usual cycles change too.

  • And it figures. I type this and guess what. I started! Just in time for Christmas. My period is long enough I will be on my cycle until after Christmas. Since I had my son it is 8-9 days long.

  • I don't know if it is stress or not but it definitely CAN be. It's amazing the things stress can do to a person.

  • Sorry it showed up just in time for Christmas. No fun. It definitely could have been stress. I had a coworker who was a virgin (and yes, there was no doubt in my mind she was) and would stress so much between work and school, that she would be late every other month.
