Missing periods after taking birth control pills. Pregnancy test negative. What should I do now?

Hello, I have a question. I started taking ortho try cyclen lo birth control about four months ago I believe. I didn t have a period the whole month of january which is understandable because they said it would be normal to miss one the first 1-3 months. My period then came right on the first of february. It then ended but for some reason around the 27th or 28th of that month I was spotting and it lasted for a while. I was very confused. I took two pregnancy tests and they both said negative. I went to the clinic and they changed my birth control. I haven t had my period this month yet. Should I be worried or okay since both tests were a negative?

Thanks for the query.
Menstrual irregularity is a common problem with contraceptive devices.
These can be amenorrhea, inter-menstrual spotting, break through bleeding etc.
So all the symptoms you are having could be side effects of the contraceptive method.
As all both your tests came back as negative there is very less chance for pregnancy.
You can go for blood test for pregnancy once which will clear-off the doubt.
Take care.
