Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that this still could be an effect of the birth control, and of course, I would suggest a pregnancy test.  However, if you continue to have irregular cycles, I would probably start a work up for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) which is a very common group of hormone imbalances that can result in irregular cycles.  I would check prolactin, TSH, FSH and progesterone levels to see where you were at with those, and then, depending upon your goals (eg are you trying to have a baby, etc) We could decide how to treat if you do have a hormone imbalance.
Bottom line, if you continue to have irregular periods, you should probably check in with your ob/gyn doctor.
Good luck!
Dr B
