    My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for years now. I started walking on the treadmill last week. I usually walk about 30-45 minutes every other day. My question is could this have stopped my period so soon after just starting a week ago. I should have started my period September 9th. last month I only had a three day period but normally they last 7-8 days. Last month I did not exercise.

    No, walking should not have caused you to skip your period. However, skipping a period here and there is normal and usually just means you didn't ovulate and no ovulation usually means no period. It's commong and will happen to most women at least once during their reproductive years.
