Stopped Birth Control 5 months later no real period

I stopped taking YAZ after 4 years. My husband and I are ttc.

The first withdrawal bleed was normal, i have since had 4 cycles but my "period" is literally a spot of brown a day for 5 days.

I have always been regular before this and the last time i went off BC (after only a year 8 yrs ago) everything went back to normal right away. 32 day cycle -heavy, medium light periods 5-7 days.

I AM NOT PREGNANT. I'm tired of people saying I am. I test almost weekly.
I am not overweight or underweight.
I eat healthy, mostly organic. Take my vitamins.
28 yrs old.

I am worried should I be? When will I get a normal period again?

You should go see your obgyn
Your hormones might be messed up from the birth control

Have you called around to different obgyns to see if there was another one that would see you sooner
sometimes there are other ones willing to take new patients
