Thanks for the query.

The possible causes for your delay in periods are:
-Recent illness can affect the hormonal levels and can delay the periods.
-Hormonal contraceptive pills can sometimes cause amenorrhea.
So you better wait for one more week, possibly you will get periods by that time.
Don't stop taking the pills during this period.
You can take the pills as usual irrespective of menstrual period.
Take care.
