Likely normal: Women on birth control pills will occasionally miss a period and yet not be pregnant. I recommend that a woman who this happens to check a pregnancy test to make sure she isn't pregnant, then continue taking the bcp in the usual way. This happens when the hormones are so balanced that no lining forms so there is nothing to shed when the period is due to come.
