I am female, 27, nulliparous. I am not currently on any form of HBC. My cycle is generally 30-32 days in length.
My last period was 6-9 November. On 17 November, I had a bad mountain-biking accident. I flew over the handlebars at high speed, flipped in mid air and landed hard on some pointy rocks and tree stumps. I had a lot of cuts and grazes, a cracked rib, some soft tissue damage and a bad concussion that I am still suffering the effects of.
I then ovulated on 29 November (I know this because I have mittleschmertz – it can be perversely handy!).
My period is currently 18 days late. It was supposed to show up around 14 December. I don’t think it’s going to turn up, at least not this close to my “next” period. I am not concerned about pregnancy because I have not had PIV sex for months (and have had at least 2 periods in the meantime). Bizarrely, I seem to have “ovulated” AGAIN in the meantime…
Is it possible for physical trauma to “stop” a period? I have only ever skipped a period once before in my life – while I was studying for university exams and under an enormous amount of stress.
Thank you in advance. 🙂
