Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

When a woman comes off birth control it can take up to 3 months for her natural cycle to become regular again. There is no way to be late, really, since it should come with in 3-5 days but not always.

If you are not pregnant, then you should expect it anytime within the next few weeks. Make sure you use another method of birth control in the meantime, so that you can avoid pregnancy.
