Can your period stop and start due to stress?

Asked 3 years ago

I have been experiencing a very irregular period recently and can't think of anything that could have caused it other than stress. Can this be possible?

Stress can affect the flow of your period. Some women have experienced that when under heavy stress, they may even skip a period altogether. These can sometimes cause spotting only or entirely change your cycle. If this happens regularly, then you should check with your doctor. Keep track of the frequency (does it happen every month?) as this will help determine why it's occurring.
