Hi Javier,


Welcome to EmpowHER. Stress can affect many things in our lives, including our periods. Sometimes we're so stressed out that our body decreases the amount of a hormone (GnRH), which causes us to not ovulate or menstruate.  If she does not get her period, she might want to take a home pregnancy test or see her OBGYN.
