I got off my birth control almost 5 weeks ago because I kept having break through bleeding and pain in my ovarys. I still haven't got a period since I've been off of it. Am I suppose to expect my period? I don't understand what's wrong.. plz help.

Hi A.J.thompson,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you quit midway through a pack, you can experience some bleeding before your period begins.  Your first period after stopping birth control usually begins between four to six weeks after your last pill.  It will take time for your body to re-adjust to normal hormone levels.  So the length and heaviness of your period can vary. http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.empowher.com/sexual-well-being/content/missed-birth-control-pill-advocacy-sheet&sa=U&ei=GWoyT5fuD8OJtwf_h6zqBg&ved=0CAYQFjAB&client=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNH98OxLRua4AjuhO7Jdn40rz0QOOQ
