I would probably call and make an appointment now. its best to go in and make sure everything is ok, then just wait.

I would go now also!

I have PCOS and this would be very common for a woman with PCOS but you wouldn’t go off the pill unless you were TTC if you had PCOS. As the lack of ovulation can lead to scarring of the ovaries.

I would definitely go see a doc just to make sure everything is still ok!

I would just call your doctor and see if you could speak to a nurse or if she/he could call you back.  I’d do that first before dragging myself in for a possibly unneccesary appontment.

Is this a change from how you were before you went on the pill?

Also, my amateur medical sleuthing says that post-pill amenorrhea isn’t usually diagnosed until 6 months off the pill, although 3 months is a more selective criterion if you’re really worried about it. It certainly wouldn’t hurt to talk to a doctor or nurse about this. I think that your decision needs to be based on any other symptoms you might be experiencing in addition to the amenorrhea too.

Moreso I was thinking about looking for changes in symptoms. The pill doesn’t change how our bodies normally function; it just masks it while we are taking the medication. When we stop taking the medication we usually go back to how we were beforehand. Mostly I was curious if these long long cycles were normal for you before you took the pill–but it sounds like they weren’t. That’s a change and worth checking out with a doc.
