As far as I know, stress could absolutely be the reason for a missed or delayed period. Hopefully your doctor can explain to you what is happening! Best of luck!

Three weeks IS a late period..but with your negative HPTs I don’t know what’s going on either. One thing TTC has taught me is that our bodies (despite our best efforts) are going to do whatever the hell they feel like doing, much to our annoyance! I do hope it’s a positive result – but if not, I hope your body gets back into it’s swing of things and you get your bfp very soon. And congrats on your new house 🙂

When I went off the pill a couple years ago (I’m back on again) I was really regular and then suddenly would go forever without a period. I definitely wasn’t pregnant (I was single). I think we’d be surprised by how long it takes for our bodies to adjust to not being on the pill.

Also – that with stress, it probably explains it!

It’s very possible that due to the stress, you didn’t ovulate, and have pretty much started you whole cycle over without a period. No ouvlation = no period.

Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to see your doctor for a blood test, just to rule out pregnancy, but I would definitely say stress could be the culprit!

@mjwyatt84:  You might have had an annovulatory cycle.  Sometimes those will shorten your cycle, sometimes lengthen.  It might just have been an off cycle where you ovulated later than typical.  Good luck!
