What causes periods to stop and start?

Irregular periods are not always a cause for concern. Periods that stop and the restart are often the result of normal hormone fluctuations during menstruation. A person should see a doctor or gynecologist if these irregularities occur with every period, or if they experience other symptoms.

What if your period stops then starts again? In most cases, if your period is stopping and then starting again in the middle of a period, then this is likely to be associated with factors such as stress or a hormonal imbalance.
