Wait: As long as you a sure you are not pregnant, a delayed starting of your period after a pregnancy is not unusual, especially if you are breastfeeding. 3-5 month delay is not uncommon.

No, Enbrel (etanercept): should not delay your period. Missed or irregular dosing of your BCP or stress are the most likely causes. Please discuss this with your gynecologist.
