When you say you are on birth control, we're assuming you mean oral contraceptives (i.e., the pill). Bleeding typically occurs a few days afer one starts the week of inactive pills.

If you are taking a brand that does not include a week of inactive pills, you will not have a menstrual period.

Oh yea. I should have specified. The pack has inactive pills but I have been instructed not to take them and move on to the next pack.
So even though its only been a few weeks I shouldnt have a menstrual cycle this month?
