Good Evening,

I was wondering if anyone has went through something similar when coming off Birth Control.

I was on Birth Control for 7 years, but I was on the kind that you take for 3 months and then have AF, or something like that. When I went off Birth Control in 2007, I had AF the next month, but my periods were coming every two or 3 months and sometimes more. By 2009, it seemed that I now could notice when I was ovulating as well as my periods were now coming every other month. Now its 2012 I tend to ovulate exactly every other month ( sometimes every month), and it seems that my periods and ovulation are starting to become normal again, and I have determined that my luteal phase is 13. So, I know exactly when I ovulate and when AF is going to arrive. My doctor said that this is normal, and that some ladies do have a AF every other month.

Sorry for TMI and long post, but just wondering if anyone else has went through this when coming off Birth Control.

This sort of pattern is very common after coming off BC, especially after being on it longer that 5 years.
