Is there any harm in switching the birth control pills ?

Hi I am 31 year old female. I am in a live in relation with my guy for last 3 years. I have an active sexual relation with him. We always use precautions(condoms) during our sexual acts. I have had a regular 28 days period cycle always. But this month my periods were delayed for 9 days which got us both worried. I did the test twice and it came negative. Now i finally have my periods and they are normal. I want to shift to birth control pills and for that i wanted to consult a doc as i never used one before and i am also afraid of the side effects. Please suggest. I am a regular smoker too.

For your issue of to change the contraception..
Condom is best ever for the contraception.. because it can not any contains which have to take internally. So that there is no side effects in it. If you try pills, may it can make such changes in your body.
Secondly you got delayed periods this month, so that you are thinking to change. but you should have to wait for three - four cycle and have to watch. may be it was for this cycle only. and many more things are invlove in it. Just like such hormone changes, your stress, depression and weather also.
Sometimes Diet which make you body cooling also make changes in it.
Purely advisable for condom..
