Birth control mess up your cycle?


I've been on BC for 7 years. It took 9 long months to regulate my system. Anyone else experience this?

Well if you think about it, birth control prevents your body from going through its natural proccess; maturing a follicle, releasing it, thickening your uterine lining and then shedding it. I was on bc from 17-25 so my body didn't go through that cycle for 8 years. I believe that because I was on it so long it took much longer for my body to readjust. In addition I also had wacky cycles before I went on bc. Overall, my cycles have just become predictable these past couple of months and I came off bc in August of last year. I came off because my DH and I were going to TTC this past spring/summer; however, we put it on hold and I did not go back on because I didn't want to deal with waiting for it to regulate again.

I hope that helps.

YES! The first time I went off depo shot it took almost a year to regulate again. I am hoping it doesn't take that long this time because I wasn't on it as long as I was before. Good luck to you!
