  • I don't think stress has ever delayed my period and if it did I surely wouldn't mind. That's one of the things I absoulutely HATE about being a woman. I haven't had an actual period since November 2010. I got Mirena put in in July 2010 and love it. I've just had spotting since November, but all the same symptoms of an actual period. I have endometriosis so it kind of helps with the symptoms.
