Some normal women occasionally miss a cycle or two. Stress may be a contributing factor but it may happen without it. If it doesn't happen after enough time has passed some docs would offer meds to trigger a menses.

It may be due to stress, but if you had sex since your last period, it would be prudent to do a home pregnancy test. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health! Safe sex: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/safer-sex-guidelines
