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!

Yes. Sometimes stress can cause you to miss a period, but I would say more so prolong your period and sometimes stress can bring on an unexpected period.

Always check things out with a doctor, though.
