    So I cam off the pill after 6 years, and as the title says im currently waiting for my normal cycle to return. My period should have been last week Friday, however I still haven't seen anything.

    For those who have come off the pill and endured the wait for their normal cycle to return, how long did you have to wait??? . .

    it took mine about 6 weeks to come back, your body has to get used to creating the hormones itself again. if you're worried take a pregnancy test, but it should be fine. for up to a year after coming off any hormonal birth control your periods can be a bit off.

    Mine turned up from what I remember 28days after I came off it, but I was only on it for 4months.. (my periods are regularly irregular, and I took it to regulate it and decided it wasn't worth it)

    Now my periods are a bit mental, but meh the first two months were fine after coming off.
