I've come off the pill and my periods are overdue. I've done a home pregnancy test and it is negative. Why are my periods late

The easiest way to explain it is that your body is used to being regulated by the hormones in the birth control pill. Now that you off the pill (especially after being on the pill for a long time), it doesn't have those hormones to rely on to tell your body when to menstrate, so basicly your body has to find it's own cycle.

CM - I was on the pill for many years and went off in Dec 04...just last month I had my first normal cycle. I had symptoms up the wazoo, even a chemical pregnancy in April, but now I'm finally on the road to where I can read my body after 7 months, so don't lose patience...hang in there. Let the pill remnants work their way out of your body and you'll be able to tell when it's all clear. Good luck and baby dust!!
