It depends on the type.

The Combined Oral Contraceptive Pill lasts between 1 and 4 days.

The Progestogen-Only Pill or Progestin-Only Pilllasts a day.

Ormeloxifene or Centchroman last a month but is less widely used.

Can your period be late after stopping the pill?

My answer is two-fold. First, If you mean if you stop taking the pill on a saturday, is it normal for it not to come until sometimes almost a week later, then yes, its normal. Most women dont get theyre period after stopping the pill for 4-5 days. Secondly, if you meant can your period be late after not taking the pill for a few months, the answer is also yes. The pills keep you on a regulated cycle, and once you stop taking them your body will probably revert to a slightly less normal cycle, depending on your body mass, and estrogen levels etc.

Your body will think that you are not taking the medicine so it must be time to hav eyou cycle.
