It sounds like you’re not ovulating. I’d give it a couple more months and then make an appointment with your doctor — 10 years on BC is a LONG time, so your body might just need a little extra time to adjust.

@cmbr:  I was on bc for around 7-8 years and when I finally came off it I got reallllly light periods or no period at all for around 3 months then I went back to my regular 28-30 day cycles. If you feel like this is going on too long I think you should make a dr appt, why not? They might have some insight for you, good luck!

i stopped BC (not TTC, long story, but TTC is irrelevant here) and I didn’t get my period again for 2-3 cycles. Body sort of has to find its own rhythm again.

This can happen coming off of BC, especially if you were on it for a long time.

Your body hasn’t ovulated in ten years, so it might take a while for your natural rhythm to reassert itself.

If you’re really worried make an appt with a gyno.

I went off BC this year, and got my period 23 days later, then my next came 83 days later (the day I left for my Caribbean vacation too–awesome luck, right?!).

I don’t know if I even ovulated those cycles. After our trip, I was ready to buy OPKs and start charting, since we were ready to try and I assumed it would take months to determine when/if I was ovulating. I actually got pregnant the first month after the 83 day cycle.

I’ve heard it can take a few months for your body to regulate cycles, and some women never have regular cycles. I have a feeling that if I hadn’t gotten pregnant, I would still have wacky periods, and I just happened to ovulate ~CD14 like I hoped.

@lillieb33:  This is exactly what happened to me. After a year I went to the doctors and was told that I don’t ovulate so I was giving a drug to help me ovulate and BAM pregnant first go. Goodluck and I hope you get your BFP soon:))
