    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I have been on the pill for about 1 year to regulate my menses. I have recently went off of the pill for 2 months, and I have not had a period for those two months. Also, I have been irregular before taking the pill. What is wrong????
    georgiagail responded:
    Likely nothing. When you were on the pill the hormones in these determined when you bled, not your own body. It is not unusual to go back to your previous schedule of an irregular cycle once you stop using these extra hormones (I'm assuming you are not pregnant).

    rashonna replied to georgiagail's response:
    Oh, ok thanks! I was really worried, but I'll be going to the doctor's office just to make sure.
