This month I decided to stop taking my birth control pills. I was on them for slight pmdd because my symptoms greatly improved. A couple times during the month my boyfriend and I had vaginal intercourse (always with a condom) but now it's been approximately four weeks (I can't remember when my last period was) and I haven't gotten my period yet. Does stopping the birth control have anything to do with my missing period?

When you go off a birth control method, it can impact your cycle like going on it can, so by all means, missed, late or changed periods for a few months isn't unusual.
Were the condoms used for all genital contact, from start to finish? Did none of them rip or slip off? If so, you can know pregnancy isn't an issue here.
