Normal.: It's possible for women to sometimes miss their periods. I recommend doing a pregnancy test just in case however it's likely going to be negative. If your periods continue being irregular you could trying coming off of the hormones for a while and see if they regulate.

Pill use: As long as you did not miss any pills you should be fine. Not having vaginal bleeding is fine as long as you have been consistent in taking the ocps.
