This happened to me a lot when I was in college. I attributed partially to the BCP I was on at the time, plus stress and bad habits of being in school then too. For whatever reason when I switched to a tri-phasic BCP (ortho-tri-cyclen) and finished up school, I’m now very regular.

It was very frustrating to me too. There were a few times were I had no period for three months at a time! It always freaked me out a little but it was never anything (I tested too just to be sure).

Technically you’re not having a real period if you’re on birth control pills.  It’s withdrawal bleeding and after awhile, your body gets used to it.  My aunt told me she was on them for like 30 years and some months she didn’t have a period and others she would have like one day of spotting.

I’ve always had ULTRA irregular periods, and we got KU on our first cycle trying!

Mine are always regular especially while on BC. Even while I was off BC they were still very regular. Eff periods, the hurt and make me sad 🙁

I  have been irregular since I was a teen, I can and have skipped up to 6 months without seeing a single sign of a period.  Other times I will have extreme PMS symptoms and still no period. I’ve never taken any kinds of pills to regulate it as I didnt want the side effects that come with it.

Of course I cannot speak for your specific situation but I have a child and every check up the doc says having more children, if I so choose, wont be an issue.
