      Hi Joann, there are a number of reasons why you might have missed a period so this isn’t necessarily something to worry about just yet, but yes, stress is a common reason. Obviously there are other possibilities, for example there is the chance you could be pregnant. If you think this is a possibility you should take a pregnancy test. Other reasons can include changes in body weight or exercise regimes, different medications, or it could just be down to a very slight imbalance in your hormones which could result in your cycle is just very slightly longer this month (the average is 28 days but this can vary). Generally I would say to wait until your next period is due (try and relax in the meantime) and if it still hasn’t appeared (and there doesn’t seem to be any plausible reason for it as mentioned above), you could pay a visit to your doctor to have them check you over.
