Is it at all possible for a large uterine fibroid to stop or delay your period?

In brief: Unusual

Your cycle can be affected by many things, stress, medicines, ovarian cysts and fibroids can affect your cycles as well.
Usually fibroids will cause your cycle to be heavier, longer or more frequent. It depends on what is considered large. I would rule out other causes before assuming it is the fibroid.

In brief: Not likely

Fibroids distort the uterus and can make a period heavier (more bleeding).
Stopping or delaying a period usually involves some form of hormonal manipulation either on purpose (pill/depo/shot/ring...) or pregnancy. If you have been sexually active and not protected (pill, etc. Or condom) then you should get a pregnancy test. If you have not been sexually active you should consult with your gyn.
