im on the pill and my period is late

Ok, I went to doctor to see about birth control pills, and i walked out with three packs of Femcon. I started them like I should've and had taken them correctly at the same time every night, and during the sugar pills I got my period which is expected.

However, when it was time for me to start my second month, my doctor had prescribed a different brand of the pill, called Sprintec. I was unsure if I should continue with Femcon or start on Sprintec, but she assurred me that they were the same, just different names. So I started my second month correctly as well, taking them at the same time, but I have not gotten my period yet and I'm now on the sugar pills.

Is it because I switched brands? Or is it because I'm still new to the pills and my body hasn't quite adjusted? My period has never been normal before I started taking the pills, is it taking a toll? Yes, I have had sex during those 2 months, but both times were protected, but both me and him. Please help!
Thanks!

It's just your body getting used to the pill. Don't worry about it. Also, if you are on the pill and taking it correctly, you really don't need to use other protection. You can if it makes you feel better, but you don't have to.

Thank you very very much! I was very paranoid about what was going on. So even though I haven't started my period and I've taken my 4th sugar pill I should be ok? Well either way, thank you for the advice!
Very Happy
