The high dose of hormones in the Ipill means that your cycles are going to be off key a little for a couple of months.

Stressing about it will only make things worse and delay your periods more. When your hormone levels have returned to near normal you will get your period and your cycles will return to normal too but they might not be on the same day as you had them before taking the IPill.
