Late period on first month of birth control

I am currently on junel 1.5/30 which is just 3 weeks of pills the one week off. I am now on my 4th day of no pills and still no period. This is my first month of being on these pills (which I have been on in the past) is it possible to just skip a period this first month? I have had sex and before starting BC my normal cycle would have started beginning of next week. Any ideas?

Re: Late period on first month of birth control

Junel is a generic for Loestrin, which has the common effects of sometimes making women who take it not have a period. Maybe you got lucky! I don't think it's anything to worry about because missing a period while on the pill is pretty common due to hormonal influence. Missing a period when not on the pill is when you would start worrying about pregnancy.

Re: Late period on first month of birth control

I was on Loestrin and then got switched to the generic version of it and out of the 2yrs I maybe got like a period 2x tops. Missing periods is a super common side effect with this pill.
