Oh, bummer. I’ve been in your same situation (except I wasn’t on the pill, my cycles were just all wacky) and that same thing happened to me. Call your gyno, but unless you were planning to get your annual pelvic exam tomorrow, you shouldn’t need to cancel. If you’re going in to talk about wacky periods, most likely she’ll just ask you some questions and maybe order some blood tests. Having your period shouldn’t interfere with that! Good luck.

I’m going thru the same thing.  I stopped BC in January, was sick of the moods, lack of a sex drive, etc.  Now I get my period on average once every two months.  It sucks, but I figure my hormones are out of whack since they weren’t being naturally produced for so long.  Hoping they’ll level themselves out if I just try to relax about it, eat better & drink more water (which I’m trying to do anyway to shed some of the extra weight I’ve put on since college!) The terrible thing for me is that I’ve got bad acne now that I’ve stopped BC.  I’m going to the dermatologist tomorrow actually, and am scared he’s going to want to put me back on BC, which he did last time this happened.  I’m going to try to resist, unless my skin doesn’t clear up by the end of the year, then I’ll go back on the pill until after the wedding.  Must have clear skin after all!

I did all this before, and the dr’s solution was to put me back on the pill.  Uhm, that’s what’s causing this? But I did it cause I figured they knew best.  Wrong! Now I’m going thru the same thing all over again! Good luck! And if you don’t want to be on the pill, don’t let them talk you into it.
