I'm sorry. Your question is not clear. Let me try to understand. You started your birth control on may 25 without waiting for your period to start first, even though you had been told to wait. Your period was due on the 26th and didn't come. You are CERTAIN you couldn't be pregnant. Is that all correct?

yes this is correct
Expert:  MasterDoc replied 7 years ago.
The hormones in the pills are causing the delay in your period. You should continue to take them on a regular schedule as prescribed. Because you didn't wait for your period you may get irregular bleeding at any time this month. Also, because of the way you started them, you cannot depend totally on the pill for birth control unil you have taken 7 pills.
