HBC messing with my period? Is this possible, or should I be concerned?

I’ve had an IUD for 18 months, and it’s been really annoying (16 day long periods, etc), so I went on HBC (Ortho Lo) last month as a test to see if I could switch. I ended up taking only about 12 pills before I gave up, It made me violently ill almost every day. The last day I took a pill was November 16th.
Ordinarily, I would have gotten my period by December 1.
I’m pretty damn sure I’m not pregnant, considering I was taking HBC for half the month and I have a perfectly good IUD. But I’m a little concerned that the HBC did something extremely weird to my cycle. Does anyone have any experience with this?
YANMD, etc. I’m trying to get in to see my doctor ASAP.
