Late period when on pill

Patient : Hi I have been taking the contraceptive tablet Microgynon 30 for the past 2 months now. I was about a day-2 days late on my last period. I've been taking the tablets correctly (at the same time every day). I am now on the 7 day break and was supposed to start my period 3 days ago, but there has been no sign of it. I took a pregnancy test about 4 hours ago just to make sure, and it said I wasn't pregnant. I was just wondering if there's any specific reason for not starting my period yet? Thanks, Vicki
