I don't have any pregnancy symptoms though
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I think that most likely the stress of losing the professor and your friend has likely caused you to miss a period.

As long as you had a normal period and haven't had sex since, pregnancy is pretty much impossible.

I would just give things some time. Most likely your regular periods will return. Best wishes.

But it just happened like recently can it affect me that fast?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

It depends on how recently. In any case, I wouldn't be very concerned. Women miss periods occasionally, whether due to stress or other things, such as illness.
