Hi, Welcome to healthcare magic community forum..
Birth control pills, though the best contraceptive method, are not 100% effective. They are known to have failure rates of 10-20%. Hence pregnancy is a possibility, if your periods haven't started yet. Get an urine pregnancy test or blood HCG levels checked. If they are negative, then other possible causes have to be considered, not before confirming pregnancy with a repeat test after an week..
