Thanks for query.
Yes it is normal in disturbances in menstrual cycle when she is on birth control measure because they are having estrogen and progesteron harmones and causing menstrual disturbances.
delay in period for 4day not a worry,wait for at least 10days,than go for pregnancy test,and consult a gynae.
Chances of pregnancy in your case is nil because she is on pills and you are using condom.
so don't worry.
take care.

Telll her to check if she is pregnant. There is chance that she may be pregnant before starting the pills also, get it confirmed before taking any further steps.
