Abnormal bleeding: Many things, including stress, may cause menstrual irregularity. The only way to be sure is to see a health professional. A pregnancy test should also be considered.

Yes as above stress, including job changing, moving ,travel and change in relationships can alter your regular menstrual schedule. Do check a urine pregnancy test if you haven't
