Can stress and the pill and being sexually active mess your period up?

Sex cannot mess-up your period, stress can but only if you have a menstrual cycle, while on the pill you do not have a menstrual cycle. The whole purpose of the pill it to stop your menstrual cycle so that you don't ovulate, as you don't ovulate you don't menstruate, bleeding you experience on the pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in hormones when going from your active to inactive pills. Irregular bleeding is normal for the first three months on the pill while your body adjusts, but over that three months if you experience irregular bleeding you should talk to your doctor.
