Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Most birth control pills suggest to start the pack the Sunday after your period. Since you are having a delayed period, contact your physician about possible start dates. Your physician may want to have you make an appointment first.

I hope this helps.
