Stress could cause you to miss your period even if you are on a Birth Control pill. It might be worth trying to reduce your stress some how. Probably easier said than done...but I found going to the gym an excellent stress reliever for me or maybe try out a new hobby or activity.

No, stress cannot cause you to miss your 'period' while on hormonal birth control.

The reason stress causes delayed menstruation is because when stressed your body will delay ovulation in order to avoid getting pregnant at a time when it cannot cope. On hormonal birth control your cycle is suppressed so you don't ovulate, and thus you don't menstruate. The bleeding you get on hormonal birth control is a withdrawal bleed not menstruation.
