Hi, Anon,

I'm so sorry that you're dealing with such extreme stress. Kitana is right, that in itself can cause menstrual irregularities. Can I ask you a few questions, though?

Are you having unprotected sex? Could you be pregnant? If so, have you taken a pregnancy test?

Are you overweight or underweight?

Are you an athlete?

Have you had any abdominal pain or cramps?

And can you talk about the stress you are having caused by your boyfriend? Is it possible that you are in an abusive relationship? Can we help talk about it with you?

Emotional Stress can definately do that to you,It has happened to me before and actually at this.From WEB MD:If you've skipped a period, try to relax. Restoring your life to emotional and physical balance can help. Many women miss periods now and then. Unless you are pregnant, chances are your cycle will return to normal next month.I am sorry to hear that things are not well at this moment for you.Try to sit down with a piece of paper and write down what is stressing you out and see if there is anything you can change to reduce that stress.I pray things get better for you. : ) Kitana
