To get a little more technical, stress actually causes you to not ovulate. Not ovulating can tell your body that you don't need to menstruate. So if something traumatic (and sometimes not so traumatic) happens right before you are due to ovulate, your body will push it later to a more optimal time. So if something happens a week before, your body may wait a week which would then in turn make your period a week late. A FANTASTIC book to read is "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" It really makes a ton of sense when you read it and then think about your body and what it is telling you. Not directely

Yes, stress can delay your period. But if you're having unprotected sex that can also delay your period. So can menopause (if your close to that age.)

Lots of things can cause your period to be late. Stress is one of them. Having irregular sleep patterns does cause a stress to your body, even if you don't feel stressed out. Try to regulate your sleep, but also look for other factors that may be the cause too.

There are many factors that can cause a late period. Pregnancy, worrying about something too much, stress, not enough nutrition, to much exercise, illness, and menopause!

No, stress cannot cause you to have your period.Menstruation is controlled by your menstrual cycle: you ovulate and the uterine lining builds-up in preparation for possible pregnancy, if you don't conceive the uterus lining breaks down and that's menstruation. Stress can delay menstruation as if your body is under stress it will delay ovulation in order to avoid you falling pregnant at times of stress where it may not cope.Stress will not cause you to have your period, if it did there are many of us who'd never be off our period!

User Avatar

Yeah sometimes you may think you are which will cause stress if you don't want a baby and that will cause a late period

User Avatar

depends on how late. You may be pregnant, but it can also be caused by stress and inadequate nutrition among other things

User Avatar

It most likely will come. Periods don't have clocks attached and many things can cause a period to be late several days. If you have been sick or under stress this can cause a late period. It will happen.

User Avatar

It is not a usual cause of someone's menstrual cycle running late. Stress, diets, exercise and such are common reasons besides pregnancy that a cycle is late.

User Avatar

It is possible but so many things can cause a period to be only a few days late, dieting, stress, exercise, etc

User Avatar

Yes, it can. I dated a girl who had a month-late period at least three times during our relationship, due to stress.
