  • yeah, after i got off the pill i missed my period for two months. It drove me nuts because i always thought i was pregnant. People will adjust differently when they get off the pill. Some have their period for weeks, some don't have one at all. The body needs time to adjust to the change in hormones. Any time you go off the pill, expect your cycle to get messed up...

  • Yes. I missed about 4 months worth when I stopped.

  • Absolutely. Your periods could be wonky for quite awhile after.

  • I missed my period the month after going off the pill because I was already pg... I still haven't had one and it's been almost a year (took the last pill April 24, 2010 and my baby was born January 23, 2011. I'm breastfeeding and taking the minipill which is why i haven't had one since January, too)
