I am concerned about your last period which lasted about 3 weeks and the fact that you do not take your birth control pills correctly. Birth control pills contain hormones. A complex interaction of these hormones ,which are found naturally in the body, control the menstrual cycle. An imbalance in these hormones might be causing changes in your period. You could wait about a week if you don't get your period this month and take a home pregnancy test. Depending on the result, you should make an appointment with your gynecologist.
