Stress-induced period "hiccup?"

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Around Thanksgiving, I was on my period, and it was lightening up. I had also been doing a lot of excercizing during the weekend. However, at that time, I began to undergo a lot of emotional stress (to the point that I was sick with worry and could not relax my shoulders). The next day, my period was gone, and I was still under stress. A few days later (not sure how many), when I had finally relaxed, I had a very light appearance of blood.

I am almost certain that I am not pregnant, but that's my greatest concern. I've had no other symptoms since then.

I've heard of stress delaying menstruation and making periods come early, but never this. Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Stress-induced period "hiccup?"

My understanding is that stress will delay ovulation, which will delay your period. So if you're stressed out at the time your period should start the stress won't delay it, it will only be delayed if you were stressed out during at ovulation time.

I've had my periods stop and start again, but I will admit that it was because I was pregnant. If there is a chance you could be pregnant then take a home test or go see your doc. If your not pregnant and your periods continue to be abnormal then see your doc about it.

Stress can definitely affect your cycle. A few times under extreme stress I have actually begun to spot completely out of cycle. Exercise will make a difference as well.

Re: Stress-induced period "hiccup?"

I've been tested and I'm not pregnant. I guess it was just an odd thing. The stress did come on very suddenly, so it's plausible, I suppose.

This is the only time that has happened, and I'm awaiting my next cycle to determine if they are normal or not. I am not overweight, so that rules out other complications.<p>[This message has been edited by superviolist (edited 12-19-2002).]
