@AmberFl:  Haha! For some reason I haven’t tested yet! I think it would be disappointing seeing a Negative, so I just wait it out leaving hope alive!

@AmberFl:  I do find it odd that you wouldn’t get withdrawal bleeding as normal!

@AmberFl:  I have been there. I took BC for about 8-9 years and stopped Jan 1. I had my first period in May and then she took a hike until the end of September. I have always had erratic periods, and I think this is also due to my activity level (in sports, always active with something or another). I am due for another period sometime this week (if not a BFP), so I’m hoping that things are finally regulating. Hopefully yours will happen a lot sooner, and I bet it will, if you have had regular periods in the past. Good luck!!

When my IUD came out, it took a full 30 days to get a period. I would suspect it would take longer for BCPs because the hormone dosages are higher. 

Good luck!

@AmberFl:  when I look back at my charts it was like exactly 6 months. Probably coincidence, could be sooner for you 🙂
