I stopped using pills 9 weeks ago, and I had a period at the end of my last pack of pills, but i haven't had one since. I've done two pregnancy tests and both came back negative. Should I be worried, or will my period just come back on its own?Thanks

when I went off the pill I had 6 months of hormonal hell. First no periods then abnormal periods and then the period that lasted 2 cycles. I finally went to my doctor who gave me some hormone pills to stop it and then monitered my period activity closely for the next 3-4 months. They eventually went back to being somewhat normal but it took a long time. I'm still having issues and irregular cycles almost 4 years later. Hang in there. it should improve. If not . go ask your dr for help

Firstly your Doctor should check this out if it doesnt return to normal soon.I have had alot of tests as I havent had a period since April 2002. They have put it down to the meds I take. Not that I am complaining of course !Talk to your doctor about it.Emx

I wouldnt be worried (unless youre really uncomfortable about it). I missed my Depo shot, and havent had it yet. I am just now having my period; it took 4 months. It probably says on the information sheet that come with your bc about how long it could take to get your hormones back on track.m

Thank you all for your help. After reading what you had to say, I felt much more comfortable. I imagine that the fact that I've never been regular probably has something to do with it.Thanks again!

Hi,If it makes you feel any better..
I tried to go off the pill to give my body a break and began menstrating ever week! A week on and a week off. LOL
Needless to say I went back on it fast enough! I will deal with that again when my hubby and i decide to have kids

Yeah, it is hell to go off the pill which is why I am simply staying on it. I am worrying about long term effects of it though. I only have one day of a barely nothing period with mine. But I went a couple months without a period when I first started taking them too!
