Re: period and anxiety

Stress and anxiety can delay ovulation which can delay your period.

Re: period and anxiety

That is quite correct. When you get stressed and anxious your brain releases chemicals that can affect your periods, your stomach giving you stomach pains and lots of other things, so yes, it can delay ovulation and thus delaying your period.

Re: period and anxiety

A few times when I was stressed it has also affected me as well. Back in 2001 I was once 8 days late, and the past 2 months I've gotten it a week early. So yes stress and anxiety can affect it.
