I don’t really have any insight because I’m new to TTC too (went off pill in August), but I just wanted to reply to tell you to try not to worry too much!! I got my first real period after a 42 day cycle and I had been totally freaking out. I’d gone in for my annual the week prior and my ob/gyn assured me not to worry and my period would come eventually. I believe most doctors would want to wait to see you until about 3 months without a period because for many of us, regulating our cycles just takes a while! Hang in there, Bee! FX AF comes soon!

mrsworrybee :  After being on Seasonique for 8 1/2 years, it took 64 days for me to get my period after the withdrawl bleed. I’m now into my second cycle and on CD 45 with no AF and BFNs. I have my annual exam on October 31st and I’m going to ask if this is normal for such horribly long cycles, but considering the better part of the last decade I had 91 day cycles like clockwork, it doesn’t surprise me too much that they are that long.

mrsworrybee :  Honestly, as long as I’m ovulating and have a chance at getting pregnant each month, I don’t hate it. It’s one of the reasons I picked the pill I was on. But we want a baby and if my long cycles can’t make that happen something will need to change. Thank you for the well wishes. Hope everything works out for you too!

I have PCOS so it makes it a little different, but my doc says 90 days is generally as long as he likes to let women go without a period because the risk for significant bleeding. But coming off BC it isnt unexpected to be irregular for several months.

Friend of mine just got pregnant 2 months after coming off BC pills (several years)… and she had no period in between.  🙂  Good luck!
