@hoodie954:  Yes, mannnny women have long/irregular periods after BCP. I think once you get to 45-60 days past April 22 (first day of your last period…I suppose, since it’s so weird!) then you should go to the doctors. They can induce periods and stuff, but they are very weary to do so. I know one girl on here had hers induced on day 99!!

@hoodie954:  Yep my period has been all over the map since going off bcp. My doctor won’t induce a period until after 60 days but if you’re concerned make an appointment.

after you go off BCP it’s a heck of a while before your period is regular or even comes back I’ve heard.

Some people go back to normal (for them) right away.  Some don’t.  My first cycle was 120 days and ended with Provera.  Since then I’ve started cycling again.  Woo hoo!  I think it’s because I lost a little weight right before I went off the pill (not much even, maybe 5 pounds or even less).  I started cycling again when I gained it back. 

It can be really helpful to temp when your cycles are all over the place.  It saves a lot of worry.

It took me a year to get my period after I stopped BCP. It’s going to be irregular for a while. If your tests are negative, I wouldnt worry about it… it will come. If you are that concerned, you could aways get a blood test from the doctor.

Unfortuantely, like PPs said, I think that it’s pretty common to have long, irregular cycles after BCPs:( I had crazy cycles like you after coming off of BCP in November, but it all regualted by January.

Are you charting/temping at all?  I don’t personally, but it seems like a lot of people on WB chart and it at least lets them know when/if they’re ovulating- it also will give you some specific data to reference if and when you go to your doctor.

Good luck! I bet you never thought you’d be wishing for your period to show:)
