Troublesome Feeding Female Corn.... Please Help…

I have a bit of a problem. I have been temporarily housing my pair of corns together for the past 2 months. Neither of them has been cycled, so I wasn't anticipating any breeding behavior. Another note of interest is that the female is only 1.75 years of age. The last time I fed the female was February 7. She then went into a 10 ecdysis cycle. I started trying to feed her again around the 20th of February and she has shone no interest whatsoever in her food. I did notice breeding behavior last Wednesday. I quickly separated the two of them based on the assumption that the female was way to young to breed. Could her lack of appetite be due to her being gravid? Could the male have stressed her out to much? Any suggestion would be helpful!!! Thanks a bunch.

Zac
