no period after stopping BC pill?

Hi all, I stopped BC pill last month (yes, I completed a pack then stopped; no half-packs for me!). My last pills were Loestrin 24, for 3 months. Prior I had Junel 1.5/30 for 2 years. That's it.

I've always had a period of some kind on my BC.

Before pills I was quite regular - about every 30 days.

I'm on what would be my 4th/period week. On Lo24 I noticed I usually got period on Friday (I started packs on Sunday), on the earlier dosage got it on Tuesday. Past the 1, still ahead of the other.

I figure I'll wait until Sunday before getting "panicked".

Meanwhile, I've been using condoms for this month. Trying to wait until I have a period before I deliberately try to get pregnant.

Is it possible after just stopping BC to have a "non-period" cycle? Where there's no bleeding? Could my stopping the pills have "messed me up", per se?

Not only is it possible, but it's very common to miss one more more cycles after quitting BC. Do a search on this board for other posts (there are a ton) regarding this same subject. This question seems to come up at least 3 times a week, here.

Re: no period after stopping BC pill?

Thank you.

I'm now 37; 38 soon. I'm hoping a lack of period won't mean I've been messed up completely. I am going to TTC, but I know I'm old. Seems I may be bouncing between thinking I'm pregnant "too soon" and too old so not ovulating any more!

No, you're not too old! Really, I think that you're still ok up until you're about 40-42 or so. I'm sure you didn't screw up, I think it's just that you have to get over the effects of being on the pill. It may take some time, but I think you'll be ok.
