Period after birth control??

Patient : I stopped taking my birth control last month and I was on it for 9 months and I stopped it because I was getting my period multiple time in one cycle. I was supposed to get my period two days ago and I have had cramping for about 4 days now but no bleeding. Me and my husband had unprotected sex once, but he got a vasectomy almost 3 months ago ( he has not gone in yet to find out if he is cleared yet). Is my late period due to coming off birth control or should I take a pregnancy test?
Symptoms:  Cramping
