When it comes to menstrual cycles and menstruation itself – that is something that men will never understand but also they do not have to worry about. It goes without saying that almost every lady pays attention to her cycle and when something goes wrong – she will definitely notice.

One of the things that can be considered both a curse and a bliss is a missing period. Why is that a curse you may wonder? Well, missing period can be the sign of a pregnancy or something far serious, but on the other hand – it is so nice to have a ‘day off’ during the cycle.

We think that is would be nice to know about other than pregnancy reasons which influence the regularity of your cycle. Here is the list of 10 of them.

#1 Stress

These days, stressful situations are not something out of the ordinary. But only a real stressful situation, like the death of someone or anything of the kind, may make your period go missing.

#2 Workout

Of course, working out is great but when you go over the edge and a regular workout routine transforms into obsession, that is when you may skip a period.
