Post With out birth Control pills Can I still have a Cycle?

Hello, I am now taking Birth control pills because my THyroid Dr told me It's important not to get get prego when I'm doing thyroid treatments.
I have one daughter and I want another baby after his says it's ok to start.
Anyway Due to my Thyroid being all messed up, I was not getting my period at all. But With taking Birth control, I am getting it Every month.
I'm wondering What would happen once I stop?
I for one is not a fan of Birth control pills. U know with the water retention and all. This is my 2nd time in my life I took them.
BUt I do like it cuz I get my period on time.
I really don't know anything about the pill so any of you know what happens after you get off it?
Would it mess my cycle up?
Thanks for reading.

Hi Emi,

Once your thyroid is fixed and as long as there isn't anything else going wrong, your normal cycle should emerge a few months after you go off of the pill. For some people it will happen right away, but others seem to take a little while to readjust. You may ask your doctors how soon they would recommend trying after you stop the pill. I think I have heard that it is a good idea to wait three months after the pill to attempt to conceive.
