  • Mine started the day after I went off of them, did you take them as you were supposed to? Did you stop after the whole cycle of pills or in the middle of them? I would say it is time for a test.

  • Were you having periods when you were on the pill? If you weren't, it may take a month.

  • I was having periods when I was on the pill and I finished a cycle when I stopped. I have taken a test and it was negative! I guess it's time to call my doc
