Hey guys. My boyfriend broke up with me about 3 weeks ago and I was under ALOT of emotional turbulence. Also, I've been having alot of ongoing assignments and presentation. My period was due 2 days ago. Do you think stress and emotional stuff delayed it?

(My last period was on 10th march and i have a 34 day cycle. we last had protected sex on 20th march)

Yes, stress can delay ovulation which in turn will delay your period. Basically, your body realizes it's not a good time for you to get pregnant and delays ovulation.
