Very soon: When you stop oral contraceptives, most women get their cycle back a month later. In a small percentage of women it can take longer and if it does not come in two months, i would see your gyne. I would also do a pregnancy test at that point if there is a chance you could be pregnant.

See a doctor: You need an evaluation including xrays. This may be as simple as a strain/pulled muscle or may require evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon or pain specialist if it is a more complex issue.

No problem: The inactive pills are just that, inactive. So, i recommend women take them so they dont forget to start the active pill on time for their next pack. If you are taking them on time, and dont miss, you will have a 1 to 2 percent pregnancy rate with pill. If you add condoms, you can improve that number.

No, you'll be fine: As long as there is no break in between pill packs, there will be no "lapse" in birth control effectiveness.

Depends on goals: Stopping the pills will trigger a menstrual cycle and you will no longer be preventing pregnancy.
