In brief: Indefinitely

Stress can dysregulate your menstrual cycle -- making periods come sooner or much later than expected.
Periods may even be absent. If it's possible you could be pregnant though, it's best to check a home pregnancy test. That is the most common cause of delayed menses in a woman with regular periods.
