    Depends on if it was anti-biotics you were on - they can interrupt the way in which the contraceptive pill can work, and make it useless - meaning if you had sex whilst on the antibiotics you could have been pregnant.

    Other wise, from memory, sometimes the body can delay yr period in times of stress - physical stress as well as emotional - so your severe cold  may have delayed it.
