Stopped breastfeeding and on mini pill

So I've just stopped breastfeeding my 9 month old in the last week and a half. I'm taking cerelle and have been since the birth.

I'm not having periods. Does anyone know if anything wil happen now- i.e. Will I get a period now I've finished feeding? I feel strange- I have period cramps , feel hormonal, boobs hurt, I've even had some dizzy spells and a migraine headache. I sort of feel like you do in early pregnancy. hmm. Is it the hormones after finishing feeding?

TBH im panicking a bit about being pregnant confused. I really hope I'm not. I've done quite a few tests (not since last week though), but I think part of my problem is that I don't trust the mini pill. I keep reading about people getting pregnant on it anyway. confused. I haven't missed any pills but because I'm not getting periods I have no idea wtf my body is doing.

Cerazette (same ingredients as cerelle) stopped my periods for years. Saved a fortune on sanitary towels!
