My husband had a vasectomy in February and took his semen sample in May. They told him the procedure was successful and gave him the all clear. I have been on the birth control pill for at least 20 years. Started late HS/early college. I am 40 now. After they told us the procedure was successful I talked to my doctor and decided to finish out my current pack and go off the pill. That was the end of May. I had my withdraw bleed and then did not start a new pack. Four weeks later (the week that I would have had my withdraw bleed if I was still on the pill) I had some very light bleeding. I am not sure if that was just my body being used to withdraw bleeding every four weeks or that was an actual period??? I have not had anything since. My question is how long should it take for my natural hormones to "start up" again and get a period? I went on the pill originally to because I had irregular periods. How long should I wait before I go see my doctor about this? Does my age have something to do with it?
Thanks for your help,
