I was on the Bee last year pretty frequently while planning my wedding. Welp, Darling Husband and I have recently decided to start TTC in Nov/Dec time frame. I’m so excited! I’m quite excited to be back on the Bee with you wonderful ladies!
Now, onto the question! I stopped taking BC (Loestrin 1/20) in late July to allow my cycle time to regulate. Problem is that I haven’t had ANY period since. I’ve not actually had a cycle since April, even while still on the pill. Before that, Oct was the last. Yep, 2 cycles in a year. Nope, not pregnant. Doc said it was normal and nothing to be concerned with. But NOW I’m a bit concerned. I’ve talked to my doc and let her know what’s going on, she said to wait it out…
Any ladies not have ANY cycle coming off BC for 6 weeks or more?

I had spotting every few weeks after stopping BC, but didn’t actually ovulate for 3 months. Pending this cycle, I think I’m back to “normal” now… so it would have taken about 8 months for me to finally regulate.

That happened to me. I got off BCP in June. Had 1.5 days of spotting (not enough to even call it a real period). Then nothing. Thought I was “late”, but really just my cycle regulating. Got my real period about 5 weeks after the 1.5 days of spotting. Almost 8 weeks of nothing. It takes time. Don’t worry yet.

@SweetVanity: i had been on BCP from age 17-31. the last year i was put on loestrin and only had my period every 3 months. i went off BCP in june, i was expecting irregular periods. surprisingly, i am exactly on schedule. it is almost frightening. the only bad thing, now that i am off BCP, i get terrible cramps and headaches. i haven’t had those since high school, i forgot what it felt like.
i have heard it takes a few months to get back on schedule. if your gyn doesn’t find anything strange about it, then don’t worry about it.
