Coming off BCP and periods (or lack of)

Can anyone give me any advice, I had been on microgynon 30 for 16 years and had no problems at all, everything was fine until the doctor decided that I had to come off it for health reasons.
I didn't want to go on anoter pill so decided to come off it for good in May, for the first 3 months I had completely normal periods, no pain nothing, I thought great if this was things to come.
Anyway it is now the beginning of October and I haven't had a period since the beginning of August.
Is this normal? I don't have a boyfriend and last slept with someone in April when I was still on the pill, I did a P test so know I'm not pg, I'm just a bit worried.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hey! I went off the pill too and i had a first period, but after that my period did not came the next month ( so im still waiting for it ). I talked to my doctor and he said everything its ok because its just the side effects of the pill. Your body needs time to readjust after going off the pill, your hormones are changing. So relax and enjoy your days without a period because everything its normal, alot of women have this kind of side effects.
