    Hello...it's been a week since you have posted, but did your figure it out?

    I have been TTC since December and found that any sort of stress can cause a delay in your period... super irritating.

    Anyways, a lot of things can cause back pain - there is a good chance that the stress from the back pain could be causing a delayed period.

    If the back pain persists, you should go to the doctor to get checked out. You could have a minor back injury - tweaked it somehow - and there are things you can do to alleviate the pain.
