1 doctor agrees

In brief: Heart attack

Yes, a heart attack is a stressful event and may lead to a release of a host of compensatory hormones, one of which is cortisol.
An imbalance of hormones may lead to a delay or a missed period.

In brief: Probably yes

I suspect that the stress can result in disordered or even missed periods but let's see what the gynecologists say about this.
(others will answer, i'm sure).
