Quit BC 6 months ago...

I quit Birth Control in June of 08, after taking it for about 8 years. I had a random period in august; then nothing. I had to take Provera in November and got my induced period but it was super light. Now I am awaiting AF and it is not here yet again...

I am not pregnant bc I took a test yesterday. How long can it really take for this Birth Control to quit messing me up? I am really frustrated.

  • When I got off birth took 2 years for us to get pregnant. Dont give up the hope.

  • It took me over 5 years and a new husband. Don't give up. Also try detoxing your home, it helps!
