@Blondey89:  I think the tests would be positive by now and stress can absolutely be the reason your period is late.

@Blondey89:  Stress can definitely delay ovulation, which would delay your period.

Blame it on the stress!

I’ve had this happen numerous times, especially around final exams. Stress will mess with your hormones…

Just try to meditate and calm yourself. I bet if you can find out how to relax aunt flo will show up pretty soon.

@Blondey89:  Stress definitely delays ovulation. I actually just had a cycle where I had a definitely delayed ovulation. I geared up to O on about CD 18 – all the signs were there – but I was moving and ended up Oing about a week later. My cycle went from an average of about 30 days to 36! And no BFP or chemical pregnancy or anything (DH is abroad).

Stress is usually a huge factor for late periods, I’ve had one go up to 42 days in between periods.

I’m willing to bet you had a delayed ovulation due to stress. No need to worry! I say wait another week and test again.

It’s happened to me, it was just stress. Stress really takes a toll on your body. It does some nasty things, like we weren’t already stressed enough! Geez!

Yup – stress can have a huge impact on your ovulation – and when your friend will show up. Try a warm bath, heated blanket, and a relaxing evening or two with funny movies. I know it seems counter productive to try and laugh during a horrible time, but even the resting on the couch and relaxing may help alleviate your worries and she will show up. I have completely missed a monthly period – once when my grandmother passed away. A whole MONTH! So it showed up February 2- February 6. I didn’t see her again until April 12th!

With all the stress going on in your life, it seems like that would be the cause. Try to relax a bit 🙂
