    I am just a little curious, while you were on Yas did you always get your period during your placebo week or did it come and go?

    I never went back to normal, but that’s only because there was no normal to begin with. I have PCOS, and though I’ve had times in my life where I’ve had regular periods, it wasn’t unexpected that I didn’t regulate for more than a year after I went back off birth control.

    My body took a while to get back to normal, just over 5 months I’d say. I was on ortho cyclen for 5 years, I stopped January, got my regular last day of active pills period, then got one sometime in February, then nothing until June. But since that point I’ve had them exactly on schedule. Good luck and hope your back to normal now!

    I was on Yasmin for 9 years. I ovulated and got my period 27 days later. It’s remained consistent since. We’re in our third month of trying. I waited 3 months before we started trying to get a feel for my cycle and its regularity.

    @bunny: Ditto. I never had a regular period, so stopping BC was the same – back to randomness.

    i was also on birth control for five years.my periods never regulated before i got pregnant….it took me over 2 months to get my first period, and i think even longer before my next one came. after that, i got pregnant. it was quite a shock!                       edit: actually now that i think about it and count the months, i think it was less than three months before we got pregnant, maybe only two. regardless, my period was definitely not regular at the time. i always thought it needed to be regular first…but i guess not!

    Oops I voted wrong. I voted for 0-3 months before I read the post, I didnt realize it was about hormonal birth control.

    My period went back to normal right away, but I think I’m in the minority. I know a lot of girls, both here and IRL have taken longer to stabalize. That said, it took me over a year after I went off to get pregnant, and I miscarried. But that has to do with me, not with birth control.

    My doctor told me to give my body 3 months to “normalize” after going off BC and then try.  And after the 3 month wait, I got pregnant on the first try.  Good luck!

    I did get pregnant the second month off the pill, first month trying – but I ovulated a week later than I thought I would. My cycle was a week longer the second month off the pill.

    People react differently to the Pill — I was one of the ones who just continued to cycle like clockwork when I went off the Pill (well…for a while, anyways, and then my body decided to screw with me & my cycle is anywhere from 42 days (regular + 2 weeks) to 35 days to 28 days.) Urgh!

    I know it’s frustrating (and I’m not even TTC) — have you been tested for PCOS or anything similar?

    ETA: I was on the Pill for about 2.5 years.
