Give it time: Often stress can delay menses. Give it a few more days before you think about taking any tests. Certainly you want to know as soon as possible, but don't need another stressor right now. Good Luck.

Anxiety: I understand your stress. Respect yourself for having protected sex. Anxiety about your relationship, hut and upset feelings, unresolved conflicts, uncertainty of relationship, attitude of your partner about pregnancy, conflict due to your religious beliefs about pregnancy and uncertainty of your dreams can cause your menstruation period being late. Relax, see a Gynecologist and a Therapist.

Be patient: Stress and anxiety can cause delayed ovulation. However, if your period doesn't start within 7 days, take a home pregnancy test.
