6 days late for period. No sexual intercourse since past few months. U have sleeping pill every night. What could be the cause other than conceiving?
In menstrual cycles is quite common! Delays in expected periods can be for a number of physical and emotional stressors. If the "irregularity continued you might want to speak with your OB-GYN!

Yes: Some formulations do a 'better' job of stopping periods. Any type of ocp can be used to voluntarily do this. If you are wanting to delay your period, you simply skip the 'inactive' pills at the end of the pill pack and begin the next pack when you should have taken the inactive (usu. A different color) pills. ...Read more
Can taking the Plan B pill while on birth control pills delay your period during the placebo week?
I believe so.: I am not a gynecologist, but my understanding is that Plan B is a high dose of hormones that induce shedding of the lining of the uterus (preventing an egg/embryo from implanting). Taking Plan B while taking placebo (which are sugar pills) will be like taking Plan B by itself. Bleeding based on a new schedule caused by Plan B may be earlier or l8r than usual depending on how ur body reacts. ...Read more

Period came early, on second to last of my bc pills. Wanted to delay period by starting new pack tomorrow but since it already started what can I do?
It is too late for this cycle. But if you are trying for continuous therapy. You skip the fake pill and move on to the next pack. It may take 3-6 months for your cycles to stop.
Now not all womens cycles will stop and you may have to go back to having a cycle.
Your gyn should be able to guide you through this. It is not fda approved and is off label, but it works well most of the time. ...Read more
