I went off the pill over a month ago (after I finished my pack) because I had run out of pills and didn't feel like taking artificial hormones anymore.
Since then I haven't been sexually active, but I also haven't got my period. I've had some signs of PMS (mild cramping, soreness), but nothing too drastic. Nothing too stressful is happening in my life, either.
Is this normal, or should I be concerned? I have a checkup scheduled with my doctor in a few weeks, so I can ask her then as well.

This isn't unusual. It can take the body a few months to figure out its own hormonal schedule after stopping hormonal birth control. If you still haven't gotten your period by the time you see your doctor, you can mention that to her, but I'm not hearing anything here to be immediately concerned about.
