How long can stress delay a period?

I have heard of women who skip an entire month because of stress. It is not the period that is delayed so much as ovulation. You are stressed so you don't ovulate. Becasue you don't ovulate there is no rise in the hormones therefore there is no fall so a period is not triggered. The delay can last as long as the stress lasts.
