stress and a late period

I feel like I've been under a larger amount of stress this month (and last) than usual. However, my period has always, always been good at coming right on time. I'm using an app on my phone that says I should have started on the 15th. And while I'm totally aware that those apps aren't always accurate, it always as been before, and the most its been off was about 2 days. It's the 21st and I still haven't started.

The first day of my last period was September 13th, and it lasted until the 17th. According to my app, I was supposed to ovulate on or around the 29th. I had sex early in the month, probably the 10th-ish, and then again on the 21st. I had a minor surgery to get a word catheter inserted for treatment of a Bartholin's gland cyst on the 27th. It fell out on the 29th, got it put back in on the 30th, it fell out again later that night, and I had one more unsuccessful re-insertion attempt on October 1st.

I've also been stressed about other things, like some pretty big family issues, school, my relationship with my boyfriend, etc. Just pretty much everything. September was a tough month for me. Could the surgery (that was around the time I was supposed to ovulate) stress me out enough to make my period pretty much a week late?
I'm pretty stressed about being pregnant, even though I didn't have sex at a time where I was ovulating or super fertile, and I used a condom 100% correctly (and it didn't rip/tear/leak/etc) every time anyway.

Will you tell me about stress affecting periods, even if they're usually super regular? I need someone to calm me down because I know worrying is just going to delay it even more!
