Hi Amy,
I am not sure how long you were on birth control but it will certainly take some time for your body to adjust to not being controlled by birth control.

In most instances, it will take a couple cycles before you start a normal cycle again and don't forget, it may not follow the same cycle as when you were taking birth control. This is common also.

Have you taken a pregnancy test? If you are no longer on birth control and you are having unprotected sex, you can certainly become pregnant. Are you trying to get pregnant? Is this why you stopped taking birth control?

I hope this helps. Please keep us updated.
