welcome to HealthcareMagic
Irregular periods can be due to as you said stress physical/mental;hormonal imbalance;ovarian cyst.The normal cycle can be from 21-35 days anything less or more is not normal.If you have not got periods then wait for 5days more and on 6th day do a urine pregnancy test with first urine of morning for better results.If the test is negative please consult a Gynaec close by for advise and regulation of periods.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You are having Irregular Menses due to Hormonal Imbalance secondary to may be PCOS or Hypothyroidism. You should be getting yourself examined by a Gynecologist to rule out the exact cause. If you have put on weight recently, you may want to exercise regularly and avoid high calorie foods. Once the cause is found out and treated your Periods will become regular and you will have much more increased chances of Pregnancy.

Good Luck.
