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!

Usually you skip your period cause of health reasons, even if your too skinny! If you are eating really healthy then you can but I've never heard of people skipping their period cause of stress. Consult a doctor.

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.)

Any stress can do that regardless of age.

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. That happened to me a year ago, and I was terrified because it was brown, and it made me think I was pregnant. When I went to the doctor, I found out it was a forced period caused by stress. Always check things out with a doctor, though.

Any medical treatment can cause stress on the body, resulting in a late period or completely skipping your period

Many things can cause a delay in a woman's period. Stress, poor diet, and a lack of sleep can cause a delay. A serious illness can also cause a delay.

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.

Well, from experience I have noticed that stress can cause my period to be irregular. I'm not married however, I am ingaged. Also, when I noticed that my period was way off course I consulted my doctor and he said that it wasn't too much to worry about. He said that stress can be a true factor for that irregular period.

Besides stress, some things that can cause a missed period are pregnancy, a hormonal imbalance, a big increase in exercise, and certain medications. Also, a big increase or drop in weight or an eating disorder can cause someone to miss her period.
