Delayed periods. Taking birth control pills. Normal to miss periods while on pill, pregnant?

Hi, I have been taking birth control for four months now. I take them at or within 2 hours of when I take them every night. My boyfriend also uses a condom. I started the sugar pills Sunday and the past 2 times I have had my period, it came on Tuesday. The first time I got my period on Birth Control pills it came on Wednesday. I was expecting to get my period yesterday (Tuesday), and it didn t come. Is it normal to be a day or 2 late on the pill? Is it normal to miss a period occasionally on the pill? Or is there a good chance I could be pregnant? Thanks

Thanks for query,
There are happening that you may have menstruation on different dates as it depend upon the blood hormon level.
Some times due to inadequate absorption the blood level not surge or withdraw hormones from body leads to this irregularity.
So don't worry for pregnancy Birth control pills has very less almost zero failure rate.
