good morning everyone
a question for you all...
I came off the pill (cilest) at the end of February and according to a 28day cycle my period was due on Tuesday. But at the moment I am 4days late now, so this morning I did a pregnancy test and it was negative, so it's not that.
I was on the pill from 18yrs old, I'm now 28 so quite a long time really.
Has anyone else had a delay in their period starting after finishing the pill? Am I just worrying too much & it'll turn up soon....

Yes my cycles were all over the place once I came off the pill and didn't go back to normal while I was trying to conceive. It differs for everyone, for some they become regular quickly but others it can take a good while

Like Bailey has said, everyone is different.
When i came off the pill, i bled every 10-14 days for a about 6 weeks, and then it settled down to a 42 day cycle for a while before i became pregnant.
Its totally normal what you are experiencing, it may take a while for it all to settle down, and a normal cycle for you may not be 28 days.

Thanks for the replies,
Before I went on the pill,from memory I had a 28day cycle, I thought it'd go back to that. Ive got a few symptoms of a period, bit of bloating & a headache (these were my pill symptoms too). We'll see how it goes....

When I came off the pill my 1st cycle was 31 days, it became regular very quickly and is now 25/26. I think every one is different. Pre pill (14 yrs ago) I was 32 day every cycle, so things can change.

Cycle one after the pill was 40 days and cycle two was eighty four days so even once your period does finally show you might have another long wait for the 2nd and so on x

Its totally normal for things to take a bit of time to settle down and everyone is different.
I was on the pill for 16 years. Lucky for me, 1st AF was 39 days later and the others 33 and 32. Your body might take a bit of time to settle.
Also, for the first month off the pill I felt awful - ill, dizzy, bloated, heart palpitations but that all went away in time.

before i went on the pill i was regular but it took me three months for af (6 months the first time i stopped it) but it actually took a full year for a normal cycle. its normal for it to take a while to return to a regular pattern after being forced to stop for so long.

Thanks for all the replies.
I'm hoping that AF is due any day now. Last night I had a sharp pain right about where your ovaries are, so maybe that's a sign something is on its way. I'm trying not to think about it too much, if I do over think it will just not come because I want it to (if you know what I mean)
