Long Cycles After Coming Off BC Pills

Kristina - March 2

I took my last BC pill in Dec 2004 and had my period Dec 23. My 1st period off the pill "natural period" was on January 30. Now I am expecting another LONG cycle, (39 days)- because I did not ovulate until cycle day 28. (Using OPK's) IS anyone else experiencing or has experienced these long long cycles? I am starting to wonder if I will ever get back to 28-30 days...... :(

I'm in the same boat. I was on the pill for 6 years, and now that I'm off my cycles are 35 to 37 days, sometimes even longer! But I'm still ovulating so I'm not too worried. Longer periods are nothing to worry about, as long as they are regular. That's what a specialist said. Good Luck

Jaci is right, don't worry. When I came off the pill (after I had been taking it for ten years) my cycle was completely different and much longer than it was before. It seems to have settled now. The pill is a funny thing.. Coming off (and on) it can really mess up your body for a while. Wishing you luck!

How many months did it take both of you to get back on a regular cycle? What are your cycle lengths now?
