Late Due to Stress

(5 Posts)

Morning folks, I am on the contraceptive pill, had my "period" about 4 weeks ago. I was on holiday and not taking it regularly as all over the place with change of time (5 hours behind UK) so just stopped taking it and waited for bleed.

Last few weeks have been stressful as a lot going on with abusive ex - so 2 weeks after stopped taking pill no period has appeared as yet. I have had this once before years ago, again stress related due to ex (we were still together at that time). I'm single so I know I'm not pregnant. I don't really want to wait weeks for stress levels to decrease and to have a bleed. Any ideas on how to kickstart period?

Do you need to kick-start a bleed? Some people don't have one until a few months after coming off the pill, it's nothing to worry about.

I'm usually regular, take the pill for the 21 days (normally) then have period within the 7 days "off the pill". I like it being that way and it's throwing me off being this late. I know it's due to stress but at the moment I haven't been able to naturally bring my stress level down as abusive ex who I have kids with is casing issues and making me feel anxious.

If its stress related theres nothing you can do other then find a safe vice to relive the stress and it will come back eat well and take vitamins if you need them fingers crossed it will return hope this helps x
