  • Generally it takes less than 6 mo to regulate after stopping the pil, it can take a year. With the symptoms you are having you could be prego, have you taken a test recently?

  • The very next month. I was on b/c for 13 years. I stopped in September '08. In October it came perfectly on time. Ever since its within a day so thats pretty damn perfect to me. Its 28 or 29 days.

  • I stopped mine in Oct 08' and did not get it until Jan 09' - it was right on time then but have not gotten it since Jan and tests are negative. I would just take a test :) Good Luck!!

  • i stopped taking mine in november 08' and i still have not been regular, it went from 30 days to 35 to 40 so i have no idea, i can tell my health is not what it used to be, but i really want to have a second baby. anyways, i wanted to tell you that i go through this too, i am nausciuos which doesnt happen, swollen hurting breasts, all those signs even collostrum, but the doc says "you just got off of birth control it will take some time" how frustrating. just keep close track of it, i am sure it will help when you need to go to the doc sometime. good luck!
