Unless an ovulation test was positive on "11.10", this may not have been true ovulation. If no menses occurs , obtain a serum HCG test to be certain about pregnancy, but emotional stress can delay ovulation and cause delays in menstruation. See your GYN physician for additional testing (ultrasound).

Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
