Dear Reader; What BCP's do is change the hormone levels in your body. Generaly the goal in doing that is to allow periods once a month but not ovulation. What does happen depends on just which pill is used and the makeup of the individual body. With that in mind, it is possible to have a delayed period or sooner or not at all. You should have regular periods while taking the mentioned pill after your body adjusts to it. If not then do see your doctor. Dwight
