In brief: Either or Neither
A missed period can be a result of many things, the most common being pregnancy.
If you are sexually active and have recently missed a period you should take a home pregnancy test. Stress can cause a woman to miss her period by affecting the hormonal levels in her blood stream, so this is definitely a possibility. You should call and talk to your doctor after taking a home pregnancy test.
