Stress and anxiety take a toll on the health of a woman and also on her period. Although with hectic daily schedules of home and work stress is an everyday thing, too much stress has negative impacts on the body. Excessive stress can hamper the digestive system and cause symptoms like diarrhoea, repeated urination. The female reproductive system can be affected too. For a majority of women, stress is a significant reason for irregular or missed periods. With a rise in stress levels, the menstrual period may pause temporarily. This situation is called secondary amenorrhea. There are also chances of a delay in periods due to stress.
