Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the delay in periods that you describe after taking the pills for postponement of periods without evaluating you. Usually the withdrawal bleeding should start within 10 days of taking the last hormonal pill. If periods have not started within 10 days of taking the last hormonal dosage, you should consider reporting back to your treating doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the delay in periods. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
