Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This depends on your present inner hormonal balance.The back calculation is ,if you have a regular cycle without the birth control pills,probably you are ovulating regularly.Likewise,if you develop an irregular cycle after omission of the pill,probably you have internal hormonal imbalance persisting as well as you are anovulatory.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
