Confused?!

Okay... So I started taking birth control when I was sixteen and stopped taking it around 6 months ago. I'm 27 now. Since then my periods have become crazy. With the birth control my periods were every 28 days and lasted 4 and light without fail. Now they are so random coming every 37-40 days if at all.. My cramps have been horrible and my periods been pretty light / brownish? Should I be concerned? Thanks

It's probably just your body getting used to not being on birth control. You should Google endometriosis and see if any of your symptoms match, it might be worth talking to your doctor about, especially if the pain continues or increases. For some people it can be normal to have long or irregular cycles, being on birth control for so long means you've never really known what your natural cycle is like until you stop taking it.
