deployment stress and a missed period

Has anyone here completely missed a period leading up to or after a spouse has deployed? The reason I ask is that my DH deployed in February and I am currently 24 days late with negative pregnancy tests. I took one when I was a week late and three this week. I want to know if anyone else has experienced this and can give me advice. TIA

  • Stress can delay ovulation. This happened to me. I missed my period right before my husband's deployment and I've had a later than usual period since he has been gone. I am 100% not pregnant. It happens.
