Is it normal to have no periods while on Petogon ?

I am a 20 yr old woman and I have been on preventin 4 a year now. I went to the clinic on December 20 and that nurse decided 2 change me from Nur-isterate to Petogen. I do not get my periods at all and the doctor told me as long as my body did not respond negatively 2 the 1st injection, I can continue with Petogen. All I am worried about now is the fact that I am not getting my periods at all! But I get period pains alot. Is it normal? Really now...
