I've been off the pill since last June, it's almost February (8 months) and i still haven't gotten my period. not pregnant either. my gyno said it's nothing to worry about, especially since my cycle was very irregular before starting the pill. i cant complain..

I stopped taking the pill after being on it for 4 years. I had my first period off the pill on day 57. Not prego as I have taken 4 test (paranoid) so it may take a while for your body to regulate.

I have recently stopped Birth Control pills and am now on day 40 with no menstrual period. (I am not pregnant.) My ob/gyn told me that some women start on a normal rhythm again immediately and others can take a couple of months.

I was on the pill for 11 years and went off over a month ago. I'm on day 43 and still no period (had a negative pregnancy test yesterday). I've heard it varies widely across individuals - some people will resume right away, others may take up to a year. I'm taking Vitex (agnus catus, chaste tree berry), which is supposed to help regulate menstrual cycles.

It depends on your body, how long you've been on the pill, health, and cycles prior to the pill.

Once you stop the pill you will get your withdrawal bleed, you should get your first menstrual period within three months of this - if you don't then see your doctor to check that there's nothing wrong. It can take up to 12 months for your cycles to regulate once you come off the pill as it takes time for cycles to get back on track. Remember you can get pregnant once off birth control, although it is best to avoid pregnancy the first year after the pill even if TTC to allow your body to replace nutrients depleted while on the pill, this helps prevent miscarriage.

The length of the first period after the pill is unpredictable. While you're on the pill, the hormones decrease the amount of menstrual flow. You can expect longer and heavier periods, returning to your previous pattern, after you stop the pill.
