Ok Bees I just need to share what is going on… so Fiance and I decided that we were going to stop having sex until the wedding for various reasons. So in august I stopped taking my pill because why pay for a prescription I dont need. Well in sepetmber I had a period… and that was it! So last month (january) I went to the doctors and they mentioned various possible reasons and did some blood tests, but everything came out normal. So they gave me progestrone to see if that would provoke a period and it did! But now the Doctors is just like okay, well contact us if after this you stop having periods again. They have no explanation as to why I did not have a period and they are acting like its no big deal!!! My biggest fear is that I have some problem that will make having children difficult, which is the most important thing to me!! I just needed to get this off my chest. Any advice is appreciated!

@Future Mrs.Schug: I didn’t have a period for almost a year after I got off the pill. If your doctors can’t find anything wrong, its probably ok and just takes time.

@SoupyCat: How long where you on the pill before you stopped? I go on it when I was 15 to regulate my periods and I was 22 when I stopped!

I didn’t have my period for months after I got off the pill. I went to by obgyn and they gave me birth control samples and told me to take it for a few months and it started again. She just said that sometimes our system needs to be “reset” again. That was about 3-4 years ago. No problem since then.

I wouldn’t worry!!!!
I have been on the pill for about 15 years… Sheesh. (I went on it before even having s-e-x because of cramps).
Anyways, during that time, I have gone on and off it maybe 7 times? Without fail, every time I go off of it, it takes months to be “regular” again. At first, my cycles slow down to like every other month. Then I can go months without one. Then they start to gradually pick up again. The blood work is always fine, vaginal ultrasound is fine, no Save-The-Date Cards, no cysts, no structural issues…just the BCP working it’s way out of your system.
I would reccommend you pick up a copy of “Fertility, Cycles, and Nutrition” on Amazon if you want to learn more about your body and what is natural for you. Believe it or not, you can also try taking pre-natals, calcium, and vitamin D to regulate your cycles. Avoid melatonin as it interferes with ovulation and that can make your cycle screwy. So can sleeping at odd hours (go figure!).
