    RMBsbride:  (I’m 26 FWIW. I was on the pill for sooo long that I couldn’t even tell you if I had normal cycles pre-BC or not.)<br /><br />I think that’s the biggest problem.  You don’t know what a normal cycle is like for you but you should have settled into some kind of cycle by now (5 months after going off BCPs.)  I would make an appointment with an OB/GYN and look into taking some supplements (like Vitex) until you know more about what is going on.  An OB can check for blood for hormone levels and ultrasound your ovaries to see if there are any cysts that may be affecting your ability to ovulate.

    i would say those are pretty irregular cycles and would warrant a discussion with your doctor.

    RMBsbride:  I agree that your cycles would be a bit wonky after getting off bc but those seem like super odd long cycles.  Call your dr’s office, explain the situation and see what he/she says.

    You should be seeing an OBGYN annually for a pap and check up anyway. I’m not sure I understand how you were getting BCP without an OBGYN. Where I live, a PCP wouldn’t give that out. Make an appointment to have one done and voice your concerns.
