Irregular periods ?: Period irregularities can be caused by delays in ovulation, which are affected by stress (work, school, emotional, etc.). If no sexual contact has occurred, and this continues, one solution would be to ask your physician about low does oral bcp's, which will give you regular periods without the effect of external stress.
