No periods after stopping birth control

Common Questions and Answers about No periods after stopping birth control


Avatar f tn Yes I have stopped after over 5 years of use and my suggestion with your mental illness history that you talk to your doctor about getting off the pills just to be safe. Ways you can prevent pregnancy is trying other forms of contraception are diaphragm, spermicide creams, and tracking your ovulation and avoid sex during that time.
Avatar n tn I did the same thing I took my birth control on a sunday that I was not the sunday after my period. I had massive cramps. If you are missing pills often or stop for more than 2 days you are supposed to stop taking them for that month and then start again on the sunday after you start your period.
541196 tn?1293556536 would that dark spotting after stopping the pack be the beginning of my newly timed cycle and ovulation fall into the normal time line or will it be a long time before I am regular? How often do people get pregnant right after stopping their birth control pill? PS. I don't really mind if I get pregnant. My husband and I have been talking about it. We were using a condom for the first week, but it was causing irritation to me, so we stopped.

Avatar f tn It worked great for me as far as not getting pregnant but I had horrible mood swings, acne, and my appetite was out of control. It doesn't do everyone like that but all birth control has some type of side effects!
Avatar f tn I was on just about every birth control option and this was by far the best. No big side effects just some spotting when shot was due and sore butt at place of injection for a couple days. Now married and wanting to start a family I am ten months from my last shot and have not conceived yet but if you factor that into your future plans my doctor said a year to two to conceive after stopping the shot.
Avatar f tn No it's not always an immediate thing i was on bc for about 4 years after my son was born and it took me almost a year to get pregnant!
Avatar f tn With hormonal birth control, the period you get is actually withdrawal bleeding from stopping the hormones, and not a usual period caused by ovulating and getting ready for a baby. That's why periods when you're on birth control tend to be so regular. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn The depo shot is by far my favorite form of birth control. I was on it for 3 yrs before stopping to try to conceive again.
Avatar m tn I then went on birth control at 17 to regulate it and it made my periods go from months at a time, to 2 weeks at a time but once I stopped the birth control pills, my periods stopped with it. I have not had a period in over 5 years now. Is it possible to get pregnant even though I have not had a period for so long? What can I do to find out what exactly is the cause of this?
525501 tn?1212435817 How many of you ladies have had problems with your period after stopping birth control? I was on alesse-21/aviane-21 for nearly a year and stopped it because of breakthrough bleeding, then had two slightly irregular periods, and now have had no period for 11 weeks. I'm wondering if this is common and what types of birth control cause it, and how long it takes to get your period back!?
Avatar f tn I wanted to hear from other posters out there, how long it took for AF to be regular after stopping birth control pills? I stopped pills in January, and immediately got my period. (I think everyone gets that initial period after stopping the pills) Then 31 days later, I got another period. So, I felt like I became regular right away. Now I am CD 34, and still no AF. I suppose I could be pregnant, but using ovulation kits, I didn't even detect any ovulation.
Avatar f tn Hi there, You had your periods after sex so there is no possibility that you could be pregnant. After stopping pills a woman can get pregnant anytime. Slight nausea and clear discharge might be due to hormonal fluctuations. If the symptoms are severe or persistent you should consult a gynecologist. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
6422064 tn?1381163765 That can result in delayed or irregular periods. After stopping birth control pills few women may experience menstrual irregularities. The sudden stoppage of hormonal pills can result in delayed periods or withdrawal bleeding. If you had unprotected intercourse while taking these pills irregularly it is possible that you are pregnant. Missed period is an earliest sign of pregnancy. Other symptoms are sore breasts, abdominal cramps, spotting,nausea etc.
Avatar n tn 5- Breakout on my face. 6- Cramps before, during and after the following 2 periods after stopping the pill. 7- Blood spots after sex, in the second month (after my first period and before my 2nd ). 8- Tiredness and procrastination. 9- Weight gain (2-3 kilos). 10- Some hair loss (until now), not critical. In general, I'm ok, but what really concerns me is the weight gain that is on the increase, although I've been monitoring what I eat, and have been on diet.

Avatar n tn Is missing the period potentially from stopping the birth control and my body allowing itself to regulate again? Thank you all in advance for any information and advice you're willing to offer, I really appreciate it. ' We're really hoping for this to happen for us, as the age difference will put us in an awkward time frame for kids if we wait too terribly long. [He's 26 already.
Avatar f tn I've really never done birth control long term but I know i really need to find something that works for me. My fiance wants to have a baby soon after the little one we have coming in February so I have to pee proactive about family planning lol. I'm nervous that it'll make me gain weight. I'm thinking I'll try the pill since I'm leary of implants and things have to put inserted by a doctor. Has anyone had experiences with the pill and the side effects?
Avatar f tn ) In January, though, I went for my yearly and I decided to get back on birth control because of my periods, which is why I started taking it in the first place when I was a teenager. She put me on Yaz. I was actually kind of excited, since it's all the rage, you know. I have a few blemishes on my back and my chest and I was hoping the Yaz would help clear it up. NO WAY. I'm absolutely miserable. I have always taken my medication like I should.

Avatar f tn Has anyone been on Ortho Cycling birth control? If so has anyone had any problems on it or side effects? Weight gain, boob size anything?

I was wondering what the chances of becoming pregnant?! Can anyone help??
Avatar m tn It is very unusual that you are having these symptoms after stopping birth control pills. You need to consult your Doctor for an evaluation. Also since you have not had your periods yet, you should test for a pregnancy. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn The only thing I have seen was about the Ortho Evera Birth Control Patch. The only reason I noticed that is because it is what I use.
Avatar f tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that you will have to let your cycles regulate a bit before you will be able to use the calendar method of birth control. It can sometimes take up to 3 months for cycles to become regular after stopping the pills. The calendar method is not reliable unless you have regular cycles. Until they regulate you should probably use condoms or a diaphragm. If they don't regulate, you should talk to your doctor.
Avatar f tn changes in menstrual cycle (which can include irregular periods, no periods, and spotting); fatigue, weight gain, headaches, and sometimes dizziness. Another fact to be aware of is that once you stop Depo injections, it may take several months for your menstrual cycle to become 'normal' again. Although you can become pregnant after stopping Depo, it can take several months to a year before you're able to conceive.
