hello
welcome to healthcare magic.
yes the periods can come early or be delayed after i pill. , but 14 days is too long. you should get a serum beta hcg pregnancy test done to be sure.
I find this answer helpful

Hi i just want to ask is it ok to delay your period by taking the first week of your next packet of contaceptive pill (straight after you ve finished your current packet) and then taking a the 7 day gap and then resume the rest of the packet or can you only take the pill back to back (without the 7day gap) to delay/skip a period

Hi, I am a healthy 23 year old women. I visited a gynecologist to start birth control, I will be getting married April 7,2017. (First time on birth control) She prescribed TriNessa. I started the first pill January 14th (first day of period) I have taken them everyday as directed. Towards the end of my first pack (reminder pills) I started my period February 7th. Now, I have to start a new pack. So, I was calculating and it seems to be that I will be getting my period on my wedding. I wanted to know if there is any way I can push my period back or what can I do to avoid my period for the week of my wedding. Thanks,

Hi, I am going on a 10 day holiday to Spain and found that the dates overlap with when my period is due. I have been having periods for 5 months now (heavy and regular) I am 13 years old. If I were to go into my local gp would there be a chance of them prescribing me period delaying pills (norethisterone)?

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
