Can Stress cause your period to get really light

Hi, I recently started my period on Wed morning and last night into today I only see alittle blood on my pad and when I wipe. I am on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo and take it at 8pm everynight! I think once or twice this month I took it at 8:30 cause I wasnt home right at 8. I am going through some stress, the husband and I are filing bankruptcy and yesterday I had to go to court for a medical bill that I am being sued on. I am constantly worried about getting pregnant as I already have two kids and seriously can not afford another one. Has stress ever made this happen to anyone else....please help! :(

  • can also cause you to miss a period all together. Making you even MORE stressed. Hang in there though. Everyone is going through hard times right now. Don't let the stress overwhelm you.

  • yes i agree with keisha i missed a period for two months when my dh first deployed and then when it came back it came back with a vengeance!! Try and relax (which is hard) and maybe it will pick up again.
