  • Besides the withdrawal period you have right after stopping pills, I went another nine months without a period after coming off the pill- my body didn't start ovulating on it's own again after coming off the bcp. After nine months I finally saw my doctor and took progesterone to jump start a period and clomid to ovulate. If it's the first month your body could still be adjusting, but if it continues next month I would see your doctor because your body might not be self-regulating again without the pills.

  • It can take a few months for your cycle to return to normal after being on birth control.
