Stress can definitely affect it, but I would take a test just to be sure.

Sounds like you to appropriate precautions.  From my own experience, and from anecdotes from others, once you accept pregnancy as a possibility, AF will come.  If you’re stressing waiting for it, you’ll be waiting a while.

I’ve been there, so first thing is to relax…or try to! It sounds like you really shouldn’t have to worry at all. I used to be a 28/29 day girl and now mine is anywhere from 28-36 days. It changed so abruptly it scared me for awhile and still does sometimes. I have two older sisters and they have said they’ve been a week late before with no reason why either. 

I would test just to put your mind at ease, I always prefer to test with SO as well so I hear ya.

I hope you find your answer soon. I hate when this happens to me too 🙁 and it makes me want to throw up with worry…which doesn’t help!

If you used condoms, properly, every time it is (highly) unlikely, but not impossible, that you are pregnant.  My guess is that your cold and the stress starting classes this month delayed ovulation by a few days.  Both illness and stress can throw your cycle off.  Read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, if you haven’t.
