If you are new to the birth control pill or have switched to a different kind, it may have something to do with your period being late. But please get a pregnancy test anyway if you do not start a period soon. See a doctor if you have no period even if the test is negative.
Please also keep in mind that any missed pills will increase the chances of pregnancy.
