Experience Advice Cycle After BC

RedBryce - May 24

I started BC 6 years ago at age 16, before my cycle had time to regulate. Before BC, AF appeared every 3 to 7 months, never consistently. On BC, 28 days to the hour. I ran out of BC , took my last hormonal pill on April 20, had a regular 4 day AF, and then took no more pills. I expected AF to arrive yesterday, based on a 28 day cycle, but I'm wondering if my cycles would most likely be irregular again because I was irregular before BC? Anyone experienced this?

Well, it is not necessarily true that because you were irregular before that you would be irregular now, but coming off of bc will deffinitely make things irregular for a few months at least. I was pretty regular before I went on bc and when I came off, my period was two weeks later than expected (based on 28 day cycle). Your body is used to the pills doing all the hormonal stuff for it so now it has to do it on its own again.... it will take time to figure out what your body is going to do. Don't worry that af is not here yet... if you go a whole month past when you expected af, then maybe see a doctor. If you are concerned about being pregnant, I would still wait a while and if you have symptoms, then test but, your late af is probably due to coming off bc. Good luck!
