Is there a chance that you’re pregnant? Yes. You’ve skipped/missed pills. However, it sounds to me like you stopped your BC mid-pack, which can totally throw off your cycle and be the reason why you’re period hasn’t come yet. It may take some time for your cycle to regulate, but in the mean time just to ease your mind, you should test every couple of days or so. Hope it all works out. 🙂

I’m confused as to why you’d stop your pack to wait for AF?  There is a placebo week for AF. I wouldn’t stop taking them to wait for AF in the future.  

This stop/starting can mess up your hormones and throw off AF.  You could possibly be PG, or you’ve just thrown your hormones out of wack and it takes time to adjust. 

You could just be too early to detect on a HPT.

Stopping a pack unless you have missed three or more pills is not reccomended. Then it is recommended that you do not continue the pack and start a new one, not wait for your period. If this happens you will also need a backup method. Missing the first 1-2 pills or three in a row together will render you needing a backup method.

Edited, I forgot a word.

I would just like to add my story here. I was late one month while I was on the pill. I didn’t want to start my new pack when I still hadn’t gotten my period. My period finally came the following Thursday, so I decided to start a new pack that Sunday (which means that I went almost a full week without taking my pills) The next month, my period was late as well (accompanied with HORRIBLE cramps) and I figured I would probably just be about a week late like the previous month. Nope, I was pregnant. I now have a wonderful 4 year old boy. Moral of the story, NO MATTER if you start your period or not, DO NOT stop taking your pills. I learned my lesson. =)
