Stress can do a lot to your hormones. Almost every woman has irregularity with their periods at some time in their life.

You may have just ovulated later than usual. Wait another week and take another pregnancy test. If after four negatives, I'd say it's probably right that you aren't pregnant.

I'm willing to bet you'll get it soon; or if you don't, make an appointment with your physician to find out why. Pregnancy is not the only reason women miss periods. Many times it's just hormone imbalances that can be corrected or correct themselves within a month or two.

Ditto, but don't you hate it when doctors keep asking, "Are you sure you're not pregnant?" Over and over? So take yet another test and then go get a proper diagnosis. Stress can easily affect your hormones and cause you to be late, or skip one cycle.

Sweetie don't stress ok! Periods are not always gonna be totally regular....we are not machines, we are human beings. Try not to think about it for a little while and if your period still does not start for week or two then take another test. And, know that in the end all things will work out. I got pregnant by surprise this past year and I was sooooo freaked out and upset. But, now I realize it was the best thing to ever happen to me...the baby I thought I didn't want is now the most beautiful little person I have ever seen. He smiles at me so big and my heart melts. I know how you feel right now sweetie.....please try not to worry ok!!!
