    Yes, stress can still affect your period, even on birth control but it is also possible that the birth control itself caused you to be late or skip. It happens sometimes. The best thing to do is have a pregnancy test done to be on the safe side. If positive, you need to stop the birth control. If negative, be sure to tell your gynecologist so he is aware of the situation...especially since you have been on birth control for 4 years.
