Re: Missed period for two months after ending BCP...Normal????
It's very common to have a very screwed up cycle after quitting BCP. And the weird thing is, it doesn't seem to matter how long you've been on the pill, it seems like most women just seem to have a really hard time with getting back on track afterwards. Of course they don't tell you that when you start, they just tell you that it's no problem (liars!!).
Anyway, I was on the pill 14 years and quit at the end of June. I have had 3 normal periods since then and they were all on time at 28 days. However, from what I've read on this message board and on the other message board that I frequent, it appears that majority of women don't get their period back right away after quitting. Some women are literally having to wait 6 months to a year!
So, if you want to get checked out by your doc, you should totally do that. Just know that it's very, very, very common to have a really messed up cycle once you quit, regardless of how long you were on the pill. I'm apparently in a very, very small minority of women who got their cycle back to normal right after quitting. As for the other side effects though, I'm still getting through them, but it sure beats putting that synthetic hormone crap in my system any more, that's for sure!!
