@oceanbee59:  If you went 7-8 months off BC without a regular period, then I would expect it would be similar to that. If you go more than 45 days without a period, you should see your doctor to induce a period. Look up symptoms of PCOS to see if you fit that picture, too, because that can cause irregular cycles or amenorrhea.

For me, my cycles went like 27 days, 29, 30, 35, 37, and then became 30 days regularly. So about six months?

@oceanbee59:  charting your temperature will give you a good picture of your cycle for sure. You could join fertility friend.com, they have great free tutorials about it all. lots of ladies chart to avoid before actually TTC. GL! Just be sure you don’t go more than 120 days without a period… it increases your risk for things like endometrial Cancer and stuff, so that’s why I say you should see a doc early around 45-60 days, to allow for enough time to get the appt, run tests and start the 10 day course of Meds 🙂

Everyone’s bodies are different. For some women it can take months to get “normal” for others it just happens right away (it did for me).

I’ve been having crazy cycles since I went off BC in April, ranging from 23 days to 45 days, and most recently, I haven’t had anything but very light spotting since the end of September.

I saw my Dr and he took blood to test my Thyroid. He said that my thyroid tests have always been normal, but close to borderline, and BC may have been regulating it, so now that I am off, it’s doing its own thing.

He also scheduled a vaginal ultrasound for 2 weeks from now. I’m sure that will be TONS of fun…

Hope things regulate for you!

I was on the pill for about 7 years or so.  I went off in June of this year and had normal 33 day cycles for the first 4 cycles.  The last two cycles have been 31 days each.  My husband and I have been trying to conceive since going off the pill.  I’ve only started charting this month, but we’ve both been tested and everything is normal.  Hopefully the change in my cycle length is my body adjusting to being off the pill and maybe we’ll have better luck conceiving in the near future.

I was normal then went 3 months without, then normal again for a while and now 2 months without! I’ve been off BCP for over a year now (I remember it was end of July because I hadn’t been at my new job long and the pills were sending me nuts!)

I had the same thing happen.  I went 120 days on my first cycle and had to take provera to end it.  I’ve had mostly normal cycles since then, though! 

It’s especially common for your cycles nto to resume if you are really thin/lean or if you lost a lot of weight while on the pill.  If that’s the case you might need to gain weight to get your cycles to come back.
