It took me about a month, but it took one of my friends almost a year, so I think it really just depends on your body!

I got my period at my regular time the first month after coming off the pill. But then my next cycle was 77 days long….I’ve been off the pill for several months now but my body is still adjusting.

Debsy :  i heard on here that it takes 3 months.. i’m not TTC but wanted to bring my body & hormones back to my natural state so I went off the pill in Jan and had full blown pms, menstrual cramps (omg so bad) and normal heavy flow period the next month. So i didnt even miss 1 cycle. I was only on pill for 2 years and its low dose (minastrin?) so maybe that’s why. I didn’t go on BCP until after college and I was like clockwork every month up until my 20s. Ive started tracking w the Clue app and everything is scarily on schedule – even ovulation. I reay hope that its a good sign for the future, I’m 34 and hoping to TTC processin 2018.

I went off the pill last month and my cycle was regular this month, came the same time it would when I was on my non-pill days. 

Not sure if this information helps but my cycles were regular prior to being on BC. I was on depo for 1 or 2 years and the pill for 5 or 6 years (give or take). 

Good luck, bee!! 🙂

I was on the pill for 8 years before having baby number 1. When I went of BC the first time, my cycle regulated immediately and I got preggo my second month off the pill. I went off the pill again for the second time in early March and got my period 5 days early (a 24 day cycle?) and now I’m on the second cycle. I’m supposed to get my period next Thursday (April 27th) so we shall see what happens!
