After you stopped birth control..

How long was it before your periods were normal. (sorry to be so personal) I guess I'm just wondering how long to wait before I see my doctor if I don't get mine?

After I stopped BCP I didn't get my period, still haven't. At day 60 I went to see my dr and she did an US to make sure everything was okay. I just got a BFP at day 75, but we were enroute to a round of promera at day 90 if we hadn't gotten a BFP.


Good luck!

I went back to my normal cycle which are 34 to 36 days long. I am on my second cycle off BCP. I will take a HPT on 9-30.

I've had 4 cycles off BC that were exactly 30 days apart.  I was surprised by this for sure.

After I got off the pill, my period got right back on track.  I also wonder if its when you stop- like randomly vs. just not continuing the pill after your period, you know?

Ok, so while we are on the subject of stopping the BC...anybody else have spotting when they first stopped?  I did for about the first 2 weeks.  I stopped at the end of a pack, and at the end of AF, I spotted for like 2 weeks.  Anybody else have something like this?

I had spotting after my first period off BC that I just had. I think it's normal.

I was really nervous about this since the main reason why I was on BC was to be regular. Before I would have my period every 6 months. I was on BC for 9 years so I was nervous that it would be back to that. Surprisingly it was back in a month! Maybe me feel better knowing that my body was normal unlike how it was 9 years ago.
