I would talk to your doctor about this.  Any major change in periods could mean something else is going on with your body, although it doesn’t sound like it’s highly likely you’re pregnant 🙂

I experienced the complete opposite after going off the pill and most girls I know have too – the periods get way worse, longer, and heavier.

My boobs did grow a bit in my early twenties.  It’s possible to get pregnant from dry humping or something similar but really unlikely.

Very unlikely to be pregnant.  It is very common for your period to be thrown off for a few months as your body tries to sort itself out.  I would get a cheap dollar store pregnancy test to rule it out if you’re worried.

I think its just your body adjusting to the hormonal changes. I have had loads of issues since going off the pill, and I’m not sexually active yet, so you probably are not pregnant!

I think it’s unlikely as well, but pick up a test to ease your nerves.  I took a break from the pill for 2 months recently after being on numerous kinds for years.  My non pill periods were horrible, just heavy and painful but I had to take a test too.  I had my boobs done and my period was 2 weeks late…yikes!  Side effect from surgery.  You can get a pack that has 2 tests from like CVS or Rite Aid for pretty cheap.  That way, if you’re super paranoid, you can take two!

Your period is just whacked out because your body is trying to figure out what to do now that you’re not on the pill. If you’re THAT worried, just take a pregnancy test!
