    Stress delayed period?

    Hi Girls ,

    I was just wondering if stress/emotional sadness can delay periods?.

    I am one week overdue today , I have done two small tests on Sat/Sun and both were negative. I dont really have any symtoms that I have noticed. But in saying that my husbands dad died suddenly in a tradgic accident last Tuesday so I am wondering if this could be the reason for my period not coming. Seems silly to be wondering these things at this time , but I am trying to take my mind of things and this is one thing to distract me.I keep forgeting about it to be honest so I thought I better type this now before I vague out again.

    Hi Cass
    I'm so sorry to hear about losing your father in law.
    Absolutely stress and being overall emotional can cause your period to be delayed, it has happened to me in the past as well.
    Having said that, it's not the only reason why your period may not arrive... hope you get a nice little suprise BFP!
    Take care of yourself hun and hugs to you and your family.
