I am a concerned new husband and can't seem to settle my wifes nerves regarding her missed period. Roughly 3 months ago my wife stopped taking hormone based birth control pills. One week before her 2nd period would have begun we had sex, we used a condom, safe sex business as usual. She is now coming up on what would have been her second period after the first missed period. I have tried my best to explain to her the numerous factors that CAN AND ARE affecting her hormone levels but I can't seem to get her to listen. She is currently in medical school with a great deal of stress on a daily basis, and due to recently coming off of the hormone based contraceptive she returned to her normal irregular cycle aside from the almost two missed periods. I suppose this post is more for my own re urance, what can I do to help her get back to a normal cycle or at least alleviate her concerns of being pregnant?
-5 at home tests show negative
-she has experienced symptoms of menstruation (minus bleeding)
