Stress (emotional, work, school) can delay ovulation, which delays the onset of your period. If pregnancy is possible, wait another week and if your period has not started, obtain a serum HCG test to be certain about pregnancy. Your weight is not a factor in the delay. See your gyn physician and ask about low dose oral contraceptives if you are sexually active.

If you had sex since your last period, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully. Wish you good health! If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. Consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine,
