a week ago my period was due on the pill and it did not come at all. before i went on the pill my period tended 2 be late after i had traveled overseas/changed time zones significantly. is it possible this might be the reason why it didnt come as i hav been traveling a lot and not been sleeping regularly etc.

we only used the pill as contreception last time my bf and i had sex (we had run out of condoms), and while i am fairly certain i didnt miss the pill i remember being a bit irregular in the times of day i had them.

is it possible i am pregnant or is there another reason y i didnt bleed?

Traveling (especially if you are changing time zones) and a change in sleep patterns can definitely impact your period, even on the pill. However, it never hurts to take a pregnancy test just to double-check, and it's definitely worth the reassurance.
