Does anxiety cause delays in periods?

My friend's worried she's pregnant. She's 3 days late for her period. Could it be anxiety?

    yes yes yes yes yes it could! Has she been under any added stress lately? It could be that! Happened to me!

    I'm always right on time, ALWAYS! Twice in my life now I've been late. I was always under incredible stress at the time. Both times were due to adjusting to my husband's deployment to Iraq. Buy a test for her. It will help put her mind at ease. She either is or she isn't, there's one way to find out for sure.

    Good Luck and Happy New Year!

    stress can make your period late or even make you miss it completly , theonly way she can find out she is pregnant it taking a test or going to see the doctor.

    Absolutely!! Have her do a home pregnancy test. That should solve the worry.
