I think you should go see your doctor and have your hormone levels checked. That’s what I did/ am doing. I think when problems last more than a couple months after stopping BC, it might have been that the BC was masking a hormonal imbalance you had all along. That is what I am dealing with (I’ve been off for 11 months, but have reaaally long cycles).

Well, I guess it could be a number of things, the least of which I think it takes up to a year to balance everything out so I don’t have much advice in that arena but…. I went to the gyne for the same reason and he didn’t seem too concerned. I had the nuva ring which I think takes longer to re-balance on and I don’t think I ever had a normal cycle before starting BC. My doc informed me that when it comes time to conceive- hormone rebalance is one of the easier tasks- and if thats what it took it wouldn’t be the end of the world.

That said, after I stopped stressing about that and other things, started excercising and eating right, my period became normal. Whether it was the much-needed lifestyle changes or simply time- I’m not sure. Chin up!

Do you remember what your period was like before you went on the pill?  A lot of people go on the pill because their periods are irregular so your body might be doing this naturally.  Plus not everyone has a really heavy flow, each person is different.

Go to a healthy vitamin section and look for “Vitex- Chaste Berry”. I took it after going off of BC and it helped regulate my period. I went for 3 months without a period and after taking it – I am back to normal! 🙂 good luck!
