Period ??'s: If you stopped the oral bcp and had a "withdrawal bleeding period", and later ( how much "later" is not clear in your message) had a "normal period", (assuming you did not re-start the oral bcp), then "missed a period", if your "missed period" does not start in a week or so, get a serum HCG test to make sure you are not pregnant.
