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.

That is no fun that it comes with stress. Geez I'd have a constant period! ;) I only get 1 or 2 periods a year, but mine is done on purpose with the pill. Mine are all messed up when I had them anyway. Some months they'd only last 2-3 hours. Other months they would be heavy for a day or two then be gone. Weird. I'm glad to never have them now. But I don't really worry about the pregnancy factor since they said with PCOS it's unlikely I'll get pregnant on my own anyway.

At least it has to be pretty epic stress, not just every day stress. But it is still sooooo annoying.
