Did you continue?: It depends on what you did after taking the 5 pills. If you continued taking them one per day then you would not start your next period until you finish that pack.

A female asked:

I don't do sex or anything but I'm 2 days late with cramping . Why is that?

Get a check-up: There are other possible causes of cramping besides pregnancy such as stress or endometriosis. To be on the safe side I recommend a routine exam by a gynecologist. Make certain you provide a complete history when you go for this exam.
