Varies: Usually at the end of the first cycle of pills you will get a period, it may be very short and scant. It can take several months for your body to settle into a rhythm.
Probably normal: As long as you haven't missed any pills, missing a period while on the pill is usually pretty normal. I'd do a pregnancy test just to be sure. As long as it's negative, I would keep taking the pill. If it happens next month, you could change pills, or just go on without having periods, which is not harmful.
Yes, but so can preg: Are you still sexually active? If you've stopped the pill and haven't switched to another method, you might be pregnant, but if this isn't possible, then sometimes the first period is a bit delayed. Use birth control if you're not wanting to be pregnant. There are many options other than the pill. If you want to get pregnant, you should be taking a prenatal vitamin with folate/folic acid.See 1 more doctor answer

May not work: If you start the pill after you've ovulated (mid-cycle) you may not be able to delay the period. However, many drs recommend a quick-start (any day--as long as back up is used for 7 d, and unprotected sex hadn't occurred earlier in the cycle) as a good way to start birth control.30-40% of women have irregular bleeding in the first cycle, even when starting the pill on the first d. So no guarantees.
Not unless you: Markedly over-exercized or you rapidly lost weight.

My period is due any day now. I stopped taking my birth control for about 6-9 months now. If I take it today will it delay my period?
Probably not: Usually you would start the birth control pill on the sunday following the start of your period. That will give you the best chance to not have bleeding on the first 21 days. If you do another start, like right before your period starts, then you will likely bleed anyway.
