I'm 20 years old and I recently stopped taking my birth control, Ocella (Yaz knock off). Its been about two months since my last period and I'm a little worried. I'm not pregnant and I cant afford to visit a doctor right now.

Can anyone help me out at all?

It's important to keep in mind that when on hormone containing birth control, it's the hormones in these pills that trigger bleeding (actually it's the week of placebo pills that trigger this) instead of your own body.

Once off these it can take several months (and, in unusual cases, up to a year) for regular menstruation to return.

SO...what you are going through is not unusual.
