In brief: If

If you are taking your pill every day around the same time every day, then you have about a 99% chance that you are not pregnant.
There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to not have your period or if they become consistently irregular, you should contact your doctor.
