I stopped BCPs in the beginning of March. The first two cycles were perfect, clear ovulation signs and 29 day cycles with 5 day periods (just like when I wasn't on BCPs before). This month I'm at day 32 and have no AF symptoms at all. I know this is normal, but I was hoping since the first 2 cycles were good my body just adjusted quickly. Guess not. Granted, it's only 3 days, but we all know the kinds of things that go through our heads when it's even ONE day, lol

Anybody else had a couple 'normal' cycles and then have it get weird after stopping BCPs? I'm SO happy I stopped the pill. It really was the cause of all my mood and aggression issues. I'm so much calmer and my moods are much more balanced. Now AF just needs to show so I can get on with it!

My boys are my life.

I cannot tell you the number of times I've seen this with post-BCP clients. It is very common to have a few textbook cycles immediately after the BCP, followed by some irregularity before things settle down again. VERY common!
