Talked to my doctor today - getting your period when you are stressed out is very common and has a name but I can't remember it now. She said it does not mean that my birth control is not working and that it should be working just fine still. She also told me that I may still get my regularly scheduled period or I may not and either way not to worry about it. She did make me laugh though. She was like "if not getting your regular period is going to stress you out just pee on a stick. It is cheap and you won't lose sleep over it." Very good point but still more of an ordeal an worries than I would like. If I can't get a regular period on birth control (and I have been on many types and kinds) then there is little hope of me ever having one. At least it is regular 99% of the time and it is like once or twice a year I have this happen. But darn, when you are stressed the last thing you need is bleeding, aches and pains, cramps, and naseua. No fun.
