Late period on the Pill

I have had severe anemia in the past and just started taking birth control pill to regulate my blood loss. My period is late, which I didn't expect to happen since I took the pills as directed. Is this normal and how long before my period becomes regular?


Dear AR,

As long as you get your period during the week that you are taking the inactive pills, your period is not late. If don't get your period by the time you finish the pack, you should talk it over with your doctor because of the possibility of pregnancy.
