Question Period late due to cold/virus?

I have been sick with what I think is a bad cold...I am all stuffed up and coughing,low grade fever etc. for like 3 days now..My question is would this cause my period to be late?? I know for an absolute fact that I am not pregnant. It is just I am normally regular like clockwork.
Anyone had this before?

Re: Period late due to cold/virus?

Hi, stress can delay a period. Hormonal fluctuations,medications, late ovulation, other health disorders..etc can affect it, as well as sudden weight loss.

If you haven't had your period after 2 weeks to a month, get it checked out. It's not uncommon for women to miss periods once in a while. If during ovulation time there was an emotional upset or sudden change that had impact on you....that is the time the delay happens.

Hope you get your period soon.
Try not to worry, get feeling better and then deal with it.

It's all a matter of perspective!
