I am 40 years old and going through a divorce. After one year of abstinence I had condom protected sex in June, and had my periods regularly after that. I had condom protected sex with the same man on August 14th and 15th. I had my period on August 27th, but nothing since then. It is now October 5, and I am getting worried. I should say that I was married 8 years and never used birth control, only became pregant 1x and miscarried. My periods are almost always every three weeks, and only 1x in the last yr have a went a whole month before starting again. I have had a tiny amt. a blood when I wipe and then it goes away and comes back a few days later. A little tiny, tiny bit of brown sometimes...I am talking miniscule. I am getting worried. I guess my question is...they say stress can cause missed periods, and I have been under a ton lately, but I have been under a ton before and never skipped periods. Is it possible to just affect you out of the blue? I know I need to take a test, but I'm just worried and needed to talk about.
