Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
It is not normal.

Your hormones are not in balance.

Excessive androgen level will disrupt estrogen peak and there will not be any ovulation.

That causes progesterone deficiency.

Thyroid hormone deficiency, estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, 17 OHP, testosterone levels should be checked by blood tests.

Pelvic inflammatory disease also can cause infertility and irregular menses.

Other possibilities can be uterus fibroid, adenomyosis, endometriosis, cervical polyps, ectropion, endometrial hyperplasia.

These causes should be checked with pelvic ultrasound.

Combination oral contraceptive pill containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel will help to regulate cycle.

I did used to take contraceptive pills for 1 year but I have noticed that I don't feel very well and I stopped them

I see

In that case, you can still get checked for hormone disorders by blood tests and ultrasound for any other problem as above.

Knowing the underlying cause is still important
