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).

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