MOST definitely. There is even a psychological disorder in which your body will actually produce a false pregnancy -- ie. the hormone released in urine, the tender breasts, even the growing belly. If you stress about having symptoms of a pregnancy, odds are your brain will be alert for any and all symptoms that might confirm it. Therefore making you think you are pregnant.

You are correct that?

You are correct that stress can cause disruptions in her cycle. The symptoms that you describe are the same as is seen in pregnancy, but they are also side effects of the morning after pill. I think your best course is to get a pregnancy test and put your mind at ease.
