Missed period

Ok so I was on the pill for about four or five years, Tinessa. Due to my financial instability I had to get off of it. I traveled out of town and came back and realized I hadn't gotten my period right after I had gotten off the pill. I then got my period the following month. Now its been two months since I've gotten it. I'm wondering if its just being irregular due to me getting off the pill after so many years. In addition, there is the fact that I was always irregular, getting it one month and not the next or getting it really heavy and lasting about five days to really light and lasting about ten days. That was a reason why I had gotten the pill, to regulate my periods but now that I'm off it seems my body is out of whack. Is this normal???

Yes. Remember while you were on this, it controlled when you bled, not your own body.

If an irregular cycle was what took place before going on this, you are likely to return to this same situation after getting off of these.
