8 weeks late

Hello,

I have been on birth control for 6 years and recently decided to stop taking it for various reasons. After the first month of discontinuing BC I received my period at 6 weeks which I have read is normal. The second month off BC I completely skipped the cycle and have how gone a little over 8 weeks without my period. I took a PT at 6 and 8 weeks and both were negative. Is this normal or should I be concerned?

Eesh.  Maybe call the 800 number of your birth-control pills and see if there is an FAQ that addresses this or if they have a questions line.  If not, ask your doc.  I can see being late the first time, but it is odd to miss the next time.

Thank you for replying! What is typical for the 2nd cycle off BC?

Call the 800 number of your birth-control pills and see what they say.
