You should act like you have never taken Birth Control before as far as protection goes. Start taking birth control just like you did for the first time you started taking birth control (if you have forgotten, read the instruction pamphlet with your pills) and use a back up contraceptive (condom) for the first 30 days before having sex without a condom.

Will you have a normal period the first month you get off birth control?

It's very unlikely that you'd have a normal period the first month off birth control (I'm assuming by 'birth control' what you actually mean is the combination pill - please don't use these terms interchangeably, there are many forms of birth control!). Your first 'period' will be your withdrawal bleed as normal, but after that it may take a few months to get a real period again. It can also take up to 12 months for your cycles to regulate again once you stop using hormonal birth control.

Can you skip a month of birth control pills?

Yes, but it is not recommended. If you do decide to skip your birth control for a month be sure to use a back-up method such as condoms, to prevent pregnancy because all the hormones from the birth control will be depleted from your system. Skipping your birth control may also cause unwanted side effects as well, such as: late or irregular periods, or spotting or breakthrough bleeding. When you do begin taking you birth control again, be sure to wait at least 2 months before you have unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy. It is not good to skip your birth control or take frequent breaks either. If you do find that the pill is not for you, you should consult your doctor to find a method that is better for you.

Once you stop taking birth control, within 7 days of stopping it you will begin to ovulate and put yourself at risk of pregnancy. Before you re-start birth control, perform a pregnancy test. If the test is negative, you can re-start birth control. If the test is positive, see your Doctor for confirmation. When you re-start birth control, you cannot have unprotected sex until you've been on birth control for one whole month. So until this time you need to use a condom for 4 weeks.
