Thanks for submitting your question here.
You are on primolut N and started it 2 days before your cycle. I must tell you that it is a bit difficult to postpone your cycle now as you have started only two days prior.
Probably, you will have it.
For contraceptive purpose for coming few days, you have to take the help of barrier contraceptives, condom.Oral pills need to have started from the onset of your present cycle to get an effective results. However, from next cycle on wards, you can start it from Day 1 of the period.
