Hi Dinh,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. Absolutely, especially being stressed out about several things, this can be the case. When the body is placed under stress, it secretes cortisol. This hormone diminishes the release of estrogen and progesterone, which are the hormones necessary for regular menstrual cycles to take place. Also, stress to the body in the form of poor nutrition alters the proteins in the brain, rendering the hypothalamus incapable of managing the release of an egg by the ovaries.
But it's important to talk to your doctor about this and make sure Stress is the cause of your Irregular cycles.
