Welcome to ehealthforum,
At times, you can start with your periods/withdrawal bleeding late (you should get it by the time you finish the placebo pills or the pill free-week). You can also experience 1-2 missed periods while being on hormonal contraceptives. However, chances of contraceptive failure and pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy and consider visiting your gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be needed to look for the underlying cause for your absent periods. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate them.
Take care.
