  • It's different for everyone. You might not have a normal period for a few months or even a year. It just takes time for your body to adjust.

  • When I went off of it, I started immediately on the pill, so I got regular pretty quick.

  • How long it takes to get out of our system.. no one knows for sure but it can take up to 18 months.. I never lost my period with it, it was just very very light.. Took about a year to get everything back to normal..
