No period after stopping pills

shani56 - September 26

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could share how long it took to get af after stopping birth control pills? I've stopped taking them on July 16 and got my "pill period" July 19-23. 28 days later I started spotting (Aug 16-19). Then I started spotting Sept 11-17. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

haven't had it myself, but heard it's not uncommon. might not hurt to go to fertilityfriend and start a chart. even just charting for one month it's a great way to get to know your body. i did my first and was amazed at how obvious things were.

Thanks for your response, it's nice to know I'm not the only one!

I've read that it can take 3-6mos for your period to regulate after the pill. I had irregular periods before I went on the pill and they continued to be irregular when I stopped it.
