i dont know anything about pregnancy symptoms, but when u are stressed, sometimes people feel they have almost no control over anything but their self-image. (especially females) Also if u r overwhelmed with stress, u sometimes do not notice u r evn skipping meals and have probably no time to even see how thin u r looking in the mirror. this is how stress leads to sicknesses like bulimia, anorexia, and binge-eating disorder.

Can stress cause you to have a late period and symptoms of pregnancy?

Stress can absolutely cause you to have a late period or an abnormal one. If you are stressed about being pregnant than you may actually start to look for pregnancy signs and think you have them. What symptoms are you having? Menstrual symptoms are very close to pregnancy symptoms as well such as bloating, breast soreness, moodiness, and a higher temp. Then again, you may be pregnant and think it is stress. I have a perfect example. I am pregnant with my third child. I got my "period" the day I was due... but it was also the day my husband deployed over seas. I bled good for one day, bled lightly for the second, and then spotted brownish blood on the third (way out of the norm for me, I am a 5 day bleeder). My doctor told me it was stress. A week after this "period" I took a pregnancy test (because I know my body better than anyone else) and it came out positive.
