hey i was just wondering if this was normal. ive been on BC for about a yr and a half now. last month i finished my pack as usual after i got my period. then i never went back to the doctor and got more so i didnt take it for a month. i started taking BC about a week ago but it was supposed to be the time i get my period usually. now i havent gotten my period at all yet. i asked my mom and she said that it might have messed up my cycle because i didnt take it for a whole month and then i started to take it again when i was supposed to get my period. is this normal for somebody who didnt take it for a month and then starts back up again?

It definitely messed up your cycle; a delayed period after stopping birth control for a while is very common. Now that you're on the pills again, don't expect another period until your placebo week.
