Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

Delayed periods can be a side effect of the pills or it can be due to pregnancy due to birth control failure.

If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your pregnancy she can get it checked. Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past her missed period.

Otherwise you can get a serum HCG also done which is more specific than urine pregnancy test.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
