Thanks for posting your query.
Sometimes I pill does cause irregularities in your current cycle as after all its an hormonal pill .
So one may expect such delays.You can do a urine pregnancy test by any of the kits available at the chemist and if it's positive then consult your gynaecologist for further management.
If negative you can wait for another week for your periods and most likely it wil come and relieve your doubts.But in case it doesn't come for another ten days even with a negative result do consult your doctor.
Please do not worry as stress itself can cause such delay.
Hope I have answered your query.
