My period is late and I am wondering is it because of stress?

June 29th, 2011

I am about a week late and I am just a little scared. Yes I have had sex with my boyfriend but have always used a condom. I am under a lot of stress right now. My sister’s wedding is in two weeks, I have deadlines for my papers and my final are coming up in college, and I am also doing 2 programs at our church for the children adn youth. Somebody told me that stress can delay a period and also if you lose weight. I have lost 20 pounds in the last few months. Also I had surgery about a month ago and was wondering could that have affected my period. Sorry this is so long but I am just a little scared!!
I took a test today and it came back negative!!

    it is possible, it could also be from exercise, stress, birth control pills. if you dont get it within a couple of days i would take a test just to be on the safe side.

    Dont worry about it being long, thats why you ask questions!
    you’ll be fine honey!! calm down, relax and breathe. take things one day at a time!

    I think it is probably just down to all that you have going on, just one of these things could make it late. Sometimes you miss a period all together. If I was you to put your mind at rest id take a pregency test, so then you can deal with whatever the outcome it. But from my experience i would put it down to stress and a few lifestyle changes

    Stress can defiantly affect your cycle, if it’s pregnancy you are worried about, go take a test and put your mind at ease on way or another. Try relaxing too, I know you have a lot going on but you can’t make yourself sick!

    Stress could definitely change the frequency of your period. Considering that you had a surgery and a lot in your mind make it almost certain that this is all passive. However, I am not sure how late you are and you may want to check to see whether you are pregnant. Of course, if it prolongs, see a doctor.
