Help... Advice. Please....

i was taking a birth control pill for a little over a year and last month after my period i decided to stop taking them which was obviously before i would begin my next month. my questions is Should i expect my period around the same time as i would if i was still on the pill or is there a higher chance it will not be the same???

Because im suspecting that my period is two days late and usually i have unbearable cramping a week before my period and still i have had nothing... but im too chicken to take a pregnancy test.. Advice please.
