I didn’t have a period for a long time after coming of BCP, but due to other reasons.  There are medicines that you can take that will induce a period for you.  Did you doctor discuss that with you at all?

@baileyryan12:  Who told you that you need to be on the pill in order to get your period? Yikes. False! Tons of us have gone off the pill recently and I’d say all have got theirs, certainly within the first month or two. AFter 5 months that is concerning, I would take a test and visit your doctor….

Some people take longer to regulate than others, but after 5 months you most definitely should have had a period….

That is odd. Did they talk wirth you about taking something to jump start your period? You do NOT need to be on BC to have a period, I have no idea why they would tell you that.

You need to talk to someone to make sure you don’t have PCOS or something else that messes with your ability to have a period.  A lot of people have irregular periods as a kid so BC doesn’t regulate it, it just gets you to a point where you body usually regulates naturally.

Please call your doctor and if they don’t find this concerning, look for another doctor. I never seemed to get a regular period back after going off the pill and my doctor did not want me to go more than 60 days without my period for many medical reasons.

@baileyryan12:  If it was irregular in the past then I would be a little less concerned. Definitely still call your doctor and have them look into it. 5 months seems like a long time to go.

Regardless, keep us posted and best of luck – hopefully it shows up soon!! 🙁

Request Provera or Primolut – they will induce a withdrawal bleed.
