    Some ladies don't get AF for a long time after the pill. My first period after the pill came at cycle day 31. But everyone is different. Maybe you can wait until you're a week late and call the doc?

    I stopped taking my pill on 11th dec got withdrawal bleed on 15th dec. I then ov'd 31st dec approx and AF arrived on 13th jan. I have heard that some people have to wait a few months for their period to kick in properly. Or your cycle could turn out to be longer, it wont necessarily be how it was on the pill as the pill generated a 'fake' period if you like. GL!!

    I've recently come off the pill, and am wondering when my period will turn up. hopefully in 2 weeks time, but before i went on the pill my cycle was all over the place. so goodness knows how it will be now!

    Good luck. x

    I came off the pill end of october, had my end of pill period and then nothing for 39 days.
    The next cycle was 32 days (I think) so thinking things get back to normal after a few months - will see what happens this month but I found that coming off the pill had very similar symptoms to being pregnant which obviously is soooo frustrating.

    Try not to worry coz some women take months to get back on track

    I had my withdrawal bleed on Dec. 1 and since then nothing. Currently on CD 58. My doctor said that there is nothing to do unless I haven't had a period for 3 months. Sometimes the body just needs time to get back in the swing of things. Good luck!
