Stopped taking birth control pill. Have cramps but no period. Is this normal?

I recently got off the pill about two months ago, last month my period was about three days long and very light. my doctor said that i may not get my period for a couple of months since i just got off it but it depends. (the pill that i was on could of stopped my periods all together because there was no sugar pills) my period is due about now, maybe a couple days before, and i am getting period cramps but still no period, is this normal? am i pregnant? thanks for your help!

Thanks for the query.
What your doctor told is correct, after stopping the pills it will take sometime for regularization of the periods and that varies from person to person.
Possibly what you had in the last month was withdrawal bleeding.
Sometimes pain abdomen can be seen few days before periods itself.
So possibly you will get periods soon. If not go for pregnancy test after missing your expected date of periods.
Take care.
