Sometimes it takes a little while for the birth control pills to regulate your period. Is this the first pack you have gotten?

If it has been regular, see your doc who prescribed them to you. Is there any chance you could be pregnant? If so, take a test.

Why does a rose represent love, when a rose always dies??

Friends are like condoms, they help out when things get hard.

Generally, my period comes Tuesday evening or even Wednesday during the day, and I take the last pill on Saturday. A couple of my friends who are on the pill (and all of us use ortho tri-cyclen, it might differ with the type of pill too) have pretty much the same thing happen. Also, like confused333 said, if it's your first pack, it might not totally regulate for a few months. Don't stress over it yet.
