Possibly/depends..: Even if you have a negative hpt, a missed period is considered pregnancy until proven otherwise. You also might have an ectopic pregnancy, which is an emergency. It would be wise to see you doctor to find out for sure why you missed your period, as stress can be a cause, and whether or not you're pregnant/have ectopic pregnancy. Best of luck.
