Irregular cycle since off the pill
Hi there.
I need your assistance please. I've been on the pill since 1995 (on & off). I went of the pill 27 Aug 04 to fall pregnant. Cycle was always 28 days on the pill. Since off the pill cycle has been Month 1 = 32 days, Month 2 = 43 days, Month 3 = 38 days, Month 4 = 30 days. I was expecting my cycle to go back to normal between 30 & 28 days which would of made it 4 Jan 05 to start my period. Now still 8 days later - nothing. I have taken 3 preg tests. 1st showed positive, last 2 negative which leaves me rather confused. Before I go to the GP for a proper test, I just want to know if it is normal for the cycle to go up again after it came down to a normality state of 30 days?

Thanks, Unsure

It can take a few months for your cycle to regulate. A visit to the gynae may be a good idea.
