Stress from any source (emotional, work, school, etc.) may delay ovulation, which will delay onset of your next period. A"home" pregnancy test is accurate. Ask your GYN physician about low dose oral bcp's, since your history of "cramps" may indicate possible endometriosis, which left untreated may affect fertility.
