Nope, and...: Shock doesn't cause a period. A fall or trauma could cause vaginal bleeding for other reasons, however. A period doesn't release an egg - rather, a period is the sloughing of an unused uterine wall - about 2 weeks after an egg was released. If you or your friend has unexplained vaginal bleeding after a trauma, go to the er.
