When you go off the pill, you may be irregular since your body has to re-learn how to regulate its own hormones. Since you've missed two periods and are getting negative test results, it might not hurt to see your doctor. They can give you something to jump start your period.

Hi nicoleoliver23,

Whenever you are changing from one form of birth control to another, it may take your body some time to get used to the changes as your hormones change when you go off birth control pills.

If your period hasn't started and you aren't sure if you are ovulating or not, please do see a doctor for help, that will set your mind at ease.

If you are trying to become pregnant, I also want to invite you to visit our Related Trying to Conceive Communities including our Trying to Conceive Community and our Just Starting Out .

I hope that this information is helpful!
