Periods : Stress can possibly have an influence periods but is usually blamed more often than expected. Usually causes include pregnancy or related conditions , disturbance in hormones due to weight gain or weight loss or any sudden sickness . You should still do a pregnancy test as you felt nauseous to ensure that it's not miscarriage.
