I was on the pill for 13 years and 2 months ago my periods automatically stopped. I decided to then stop taking the pill.
My period has not come back as yet and due to me not being on the pill, my acne has been on its worst.
My gynae recommended i can start the pill once i get my periods, but since i don''t know when it will make an appearance again, can i start the pill anytime then?

As long as you have checked that you are not pregnant, you could start the Pill, but you should also be checked for other thngs whihc could cause your periods to stay away, such as cysts and thyroid problems.
