Sooooo just a question. I went off my BCP around Christmas, and AF hasn’t come for a visit yet. I had one TINY bit of very light spotting the other day and that’s been it. I don’t think I could be pregnant, and I know it takes a while for everything to get back into line, but it’s been like 6 weeks………….. Advice?
ETA – We’re not TTC btw. We’ve been using condoms.

Soemthing like 32-35 days after I stopped, which is pretty close to my natural cycle (31 days, like clockwork). Call your doctor? I don’t think 6 weeks is out of the range of normal, but if you’re worried, you should check!

it took me almost 4 months. . .so don’t feel like something is wrong or anything. I was on it for a long time, so it took a while to re-adjust. I did have some spotting, but that was it for 3 months

@spaniel: I think I was on a 35 day cycle before BCP (trying to remember back 14 years…). I guess now that we’re relying on condoms I just feel a bit paranoid! LOL!
@ktisthatbees: Wow! Four months?! I would have peed on a million sticks by then!!! LOL!
Thanks for your responses ladies! I’ll calm down now 😉

I got my period just a few days before I normally would have gotten it on the pill. After that it was pretty regular. I’m now back on the pill because I was afraid of accidentally getting pregnant before the wedding. Everyone is different going off BC. A friend from work didn’t get hers for 3 months after she quit.
