Im 20 years old, and last month I left home to move 12 hours away to live with my boyfriend, my periods have never been more then 32 days apart (uasally are 28-30 days), but last month due to all the stress from moving It was 36 days. Since then I have been having regular unprotected sex, and right now im going on 4 days late (or 32 days).

My breasts are always sore before I start my period and even when im late, my breasts are sore the entire time. Right now being 4 days late, they are not sore at all. I feel no diffrent except the last 2 days I have been more tired then uasal.

Could the stress from last month still be effecting my period?

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question. Stress can cause some women to be late with a period. However, if you are having regular, unprotected sex, you are increasing your risk for pregnancy. To resolve your concern, you may want to take a home pregnancy test. Here are a few things to remember.
According to babycenter.com:
the test measures the hormone hCg in your urine
hCG first enters your blood about 6 days after fertilization
the amount of hCG increases rapidly after that
So, You're much more likely to get an accurate result if you wait a week after your expected period before testing.
Hope this is helpful.
