You know what? I wondered this myself. I wouldn’t think so because I’m not quite sure to how the two would be connect, but it’s a possibility. Our health expert, Michelle, might be able to provide a more certain answer. But I know for sure that when I’m stressed, the last thing I need is for my period to start, or worse, to start spotting. Oh, how I despise spotting!
Stress can lead to spotting — especially extreme stress. If you're living with a lot of stress, learn to take care of yourself and your health. Be sure to exercise regularly. Exercise is a great stress reliever and, if you're like me, the time spent exercising gives you time to sort through your worries and thoughts. Also, be sure to eat healthfully. Many people (me included) tend to reach for sweets or junk food when stressed out. But choosing nutritious foods can give you more energy and actually help you feel better. It's also important to get enough sleep.
