Not just a chance: It's a known fact that stress can alter periods, but as far as missing them, i'd take a pregnancy test just in case.

A 35-year-old member asked:

Do women react to stress differently?

Absolutely: Women tend to be more emotionally "open" about stress and their stress feeing tends to diminish with "talking" about it with a trusted friend. Men, on the other hand, tend to feel better about the stress when they seek solitude and dismiss themselves from the situation.This can sometimes cause a misunderstanding between men and women, as the woman could feel "abandoned" and a .Man feel "nagged".

Manage it: Everyone has to deal with stressful situations. But it's not only the stress that makes us feel achy, tense, and irritable. It's also how we react to the stress. It's possible to retrain your brain to respond to stress so it doesn't cause you distress -- at least some of the time. The american psychological association pages on stress are a good place to start: www.Apa.Org/helpcenter/stress.Aspx.

Not exactly.....: Several factors come to play......if you are producing ovum, if your male partner is potent and donating enough healthy sperms at the time. Local factors matter also.......you can have local environment hostile/destructive to the sperm, your ovum is late/early, your ovum is defective, there is structural anomaly in the genital tract, Your male partner does not want child, infection like chlamydia.
