Could be normal: If you are on hormonal birth control, the pill, the patch, the ring, depo-provera, implanon, mirena, (levonorgestrel) having no period is normal. If you haven't missed taking your birth control, you probably aren't pregnant. If your blood pregnancy test is negative, you aren't pregnant.

Blood test: If you have any concern get a blood test for HCG level.
