Thanks for posting your query.

It is highly unlikely that you are pregnant since you have got your periods and that urine pregnancy test is negative.

But due to stress or in case, you had any emergency contraceptive pill, there might be some disturbances in your present cycle.

It should resolve in the next cycle or a couple of cycles at the most. Even if you didn't take any pill, the stress itself can cause such thing.

So kindly relax and in future always use barrier contraceptive and be safe.

I hope, I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.
