Ok, I'm seven days late for getting my period. I've been having a lot of stress, you know, ending school, taking finals, boyfriend problems, friend problems, parents, ect. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get it soon, because I've been having moodswimgs and cramps... But my cramps are SO bad... I feel like I'm being stabbed by a 10 inch knife. I've also been having terrible regular stomach aches, kind of like heartburn, and some kind of acid reflex, I guess. I feel so sick sometimes... I don't know what to do... Could this heartburn thing have anything to do with me missing my period? What is it?

Heartburn and acid reflux can be aggravated by stress, so it's possible that you're experiencing those things now because your life has been so stressful. And of course, stress can delay menstruation.

That said, acid reflux and heartburn can be serious problems, so if it continues for any length of time, you really should see your doctor.
