Sounds like you need a new doctor id be worried if i didnt get my period for three months. So nothing happens when you are on the placebo pills?

msbam:  Birth control prevents you from ovulating so no. And it’s not a real period, its a withdrawal bleed…… I think you need to do some research regarding how the pill works….

Go off it and use back up until you’re ready

If I were you, I’d go off the pill and use a non-hormonal form of birth control if you want to avoid pregnancy right now. That way you’ll be able to see what happens with your cycles and notify your doctor if your body doesn’t regulate itself off the pill.

No you are not ovulating because the pill prevents ovulation. I went off the pill about 6 months prior to TTC & I’m glad I did because it took a long time for me to ovulate and get a real period (over 100 days). We used condoms during that time but it wouldn’t have been the end of the world had I gotten pregnant earlier then intended.  If you’re prepared to possibly get pregnant immediately, I’d get off now.

msbam:  BCP can make your period crazy. You don’t need to bleed when you’re on it because you’re not ovulating. If your doctor isn’t concerned, I wouldn’t be either. If it will make you feel better, then yes, get off of it and see if your body regulates itself.

I was on the pill for 12 years, and had completely lost my period this summer for months, which worried me a great deal. My gyno was completely unconcerned and said that’s just how it is on the pill sometimes.   I went off  the pill (first time in 12 years! It felt momentus) because I wanted to know what was going on, and… got a real period right away at the 31 day mark.  So I’d be inclined to think your gyno, like mine, knew what he/she was talking about.
