late periods, illness, stress and neg. pregnancy tests!

I'm understanding that stress and illness can make your period late, right?? Well how late is normal? I just moved, and I have a cold, and I'm 4 days late. I'm not even cramping like I usually do. Test today was neg. Could I still be pregnant, or how long can this possibly go on for?

  • I have been just over 4 days late due to stress, but it can last longer then that. At this point I would attribute it to such, but if it goes more then 2 weeks or you are worried about it, call the OBGYN.
