Thank you for your query.
When you are using birth control pills and also the emergency contraceptive pill the period can get a little delayed. Anyhow you say that your periods are only delayed by 2days it should not be a problem. ECP pills do cause intermittent bleeding or delay or irregularity in periods. Wait for another 2-3 days if the period does not come opt for a home pregnancy test to check out pregnancy status.
Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
