May be normal: There is some normal variation in cycle length from one period to the next and that could be all it is. Stress can also cause this, but if you are worried about pregnancy as you seem, do a pregnancy test to know and , if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days to know for sure. Unless you are ready for parenthood, now is a good time to start a reliable method of contraception to relieve that worry.
