Irregular and stressed out!
Posted on: 01/19/2011
I have been irregular for months now. During these months I have been late for my period. I would get it like two days before or a week after now. I was supposed to get my period this month on the 12th but did not get it. I took a pregnancy test and it said pregnant. Then I took another one right after and it said not pregnant. Then I went to a women?s health clinic and took a pregnancy test there and it said not pregnant and that I should get it within two weeks. I?ve never had this problem and it?s scary. The woman said it could be from stress. I mean my boyfriend?s grandmother had a heart attack in front of me and I will be moving soon, but once I get my period I should be fine I need major help.....
It does sound likely that the level of stress you are living with is making you irregular, so please find someone to talk with and avoid unprotected intercourse, so you are not worried about pregnancy.
