Probably normal: Menstrual changes occur in approximately 15% of women in any given menstrual cycle. This is probably normal.

Preggers?: Take a pregnancy test. That could have been a little spotting from implantation of an embryo.

After breastfeeding: Some women get their period back within a few months, some women don't get it for almost a year or more. If you are still breastfeeding you will likely not get your period until you stop or until you are feeding less frequently than every 5 hours or so, usually once your baby starts sleeping through the night.

Depends: It depends on how far along you are. Most women feel movment first at 18-20 weeks. From there until about 30 weeks fetal movements may not be regular and you may not feel them every day. After 30 weeks, you should feel your baby move every day. If you are ever worried it is easier and safer to get checked then to stay at home wondering.

Yes: Usually if ovulation occurs and no menstrual cycle follows you are probably pregnant. If you are not pregnant then either the lining of the uterine wall has scarring or the cervix is scarred closed or the vagina is blocked.

Keep taking them: It's possible not to have a withdraw bleed with ocps. It's more common with prolonged use, but to be safe, do a pregnancy test to make sure you're ok. Keep taking them if your test is negative & enjoy the lack of menses - not a problem & in my view, a perk to ocps. Take care.
