Nuvaring stopped. Started taking pills. Have pregnancy symptoms with weight gain. Chances?

So I was on the Nuvaring for over a year but then my insurance changed. So i was switched to a 21 day pill , with seven placebo pills. I am not on my fourth pack of the birth control pills. I skipped my period two months in a row on purpose- continuing on with a new pack instead of the placebo pills. It was a stressful time for me and I wasnt sexual active at the time. So after finishing the third pack, I continued it out. During the third pack, I had a boyfriend for a little while, we were sexual active and practiced safe sex . Now I am over a week late on my period, almost two, I took a pregnancy test and it came negative. I havent gained any weight or had any early pregnancy symtoms. If i were at all pregnant, i would be the earliest-two to three weeks pregnant. I think the possiblity of pregnancy is slim, but skipping my period this month, is that normal?

Thanks for writing to us.
It is common not to have periods while you are taking oral contraceptive pills regularly. If you have not missed even a single pill, then pregnancy is ruled out. You can continue taking the pills as usual.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
