Is your menstrual cycle messed up if you stopped using the birth control pill and have missed a period but the pregnancy test came out negative?

In short, yes, your menstrual cycle is messed up.

Hormonal birth control suppresses your menstrual cycles so that you no longer ovulate, and thus in turn you also don't menstruate either - bleeding you get on the pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when you go into your placebo week. Coming off the pill it takes time for your menstrual cycles to reestablish themselves, you should menstruate within three months but don't be surprised if your cycles are irregular for up to twelve months after stopping hormonal birth control. If still worried about pregnancy then go talk to your doctor to make sure that everything is okay, and maybe look at getting another form of birth control.

No you cannot. When you are pregnant your menstrual cycle is stopped until after birth

Menstrual cycles will come to an end as women go through menopause. Women's menstrual cycles will also be stopped if they fall pregnant, while on hormonal birth control, or after a hysterectomy.

The menstrual cycle continues up until pregnancy when the menstrual cycle is stopped so that you no longer ovulate while pregnant and the uterine lining isn't shed. The menstrual cycles also come to an end at the end of your reproductive years going into menopause.

Avoid pregnancy while taking misoprostol and for at least one month or one completed menstrual cycle after you have stopped treatment. Misprost is used to prevent ulcers, not pregnancy.
