OCP: Is this your first pill pack? Did you miss or take any pills later than normal? If so, indeed this could be normal.

Not with new BC's: If you just started the oral contraceptive one week ago, your period will be delayed until the end of this first pack as long as you were not pregnant prior to starting the pill.
