can depression and stress stop your menstrual cycle.

Not one for the guys, this question! Sorry if it makes anyone uncomfortable.

So this is the thing. I have never been all that regular, even when on the pill. However I haven't been on the pill or any other contraceptives because they wreck havoc with my emotions and body.

But now, even by my standards this is getting ridiculous. With every new month I fret and worry. Each month it arrives later and later. So I go according to the new date, but by the next month it has changed again? And now this month so far I have missed it altogether when a pregnancy test has told me negative.

What is doing this!? Stress? Depression? A boost in my meds?
It's driving me mad!

It could be caused from stress. Some women just do not have a normal cycle though. If you can't take the pill what about other forms of birth control so you won't be worried about an unplanned pregnancy? Have you had any testing done to find out why you may be having these irregular cycles?

Well stress could possibly be the cause.  Also anorexia stops periods.  I know you did have an eating problem at one time.  Was it the same then?

I do not know if anti-depressants can do this?  Have you googled it?
