This question is for the older members here, so here goes:
Anyone on BC and then for numerous reason quit/forget/skip it?
Last summer we were in-between paychecks and I wasn't able to get my BC on time so I had to skip a month. Well in order to start my BC I had to start my period. I waited and waited and waited. A month and a half later I'm freaking out because I think I'm prego, but test after test says I'm not. So I went to the doctor. He told me to just wait it out and I told him that wasn't an option for me because I'm a worrier. So he gave me a prescription that made me start my period.
Fast-forward to now. I quit my BC because my husband and I are planing to start a family in a few months. BUT I'm now repeating the 'missing' period. I've researched online as much as I could and as far as I can tell it's a fairly common thing for BC users to experience (1 out of 10).
My questions are:
*Am I ovulating? &
*Has anyone else experienced this?
-If So: About how long did you have to wait to recieve your period?
