If I take two months of birth control pills, should my period start regularly when I am finished taking them? I took two months worth of pills, but may have mixed one up here and there... I was suppose to start my period on Wednesday (today is Friday). Could I be pregnant? Or is it late because of where I took two months worth of pills?

Your period should come during the inactive week's pills. It might not come on day 1. There is also a small possibility that it might be very light and very short, or even be absent.

If you think you can be pregnant, take a pregnancy test.

Negative pregnancy test...
I took a pregnancy test, and it came back negative... But still no period. Sunday is my day to start a new pack of pills. Should I start then, even though I have not had a period? Or do I wait until I have one?

Yes, just start the next pack. Never adust your pills to what your body is doing. Your body must adjust to the pills.

Take another pregnancy test a week after starting the next pack, just to make sure.
