My period is two days late. Of course I know for sure I'm not pregnant. I just wonder what can affect our period and make it late? the stress? weather? tiredness? Please share.

Stress affects my period bad enough that I don't have mine anymore. Also certain meds you are on can change your period to heavy or light compared to what you are used to.

I hope you can find ways to release your stress. It's really bad for our health.

Thank you. i do try to find ways. But it is hard when I have my kids all summer. My stress level will go down when school starts back up. I then can get a few hours to do something by myself.

Stress used to effect my periods really badly, to the point that I didnt have them for about 3 to 4 months at a time! I am not sure why this happens and I guess that it is different for everyone but this definitely played a big part in whether I go mine or not!

I strongly suggest you go to see a doctor. I hear the symptom like yours may affect the chances of having babies. I suggest traditional Chinese medicine therapy

I didnt have a period for about 3 months and then fell pregnant with my daughter! I only want one child so I am not too worried about it all now, I am happy with the child that I have

Diet also has an effect. If you've drastically changed your diet (i.e. eating a lot less, eating a lot more, eating healthier or unhealthier foods, etc) your period may be altered as a result.

I've never heard of that. You really opened my mind. I will keep that in mind.

Hi there. My views on this post, I think stress and being unsettled, or worrying about something, will affect the flow of a period, as well over working and not letting your body relax, as it should too...

My cycle is often 28-33, but this time is 35, somewhat abnormal. I just wish women didn't have to suffer from the monthly inconvenience
