Irregular Periods
I went off the pill for about 9 months before I got married, went back on it 3 months before my wedding to try and eliminate my acne problem, went off it again after the wedding. I've been off it for 17 months now, with no luck of conception, and I have been having irregular periods since I've stopped the pill, right from the first time. Should I be worried, or did I mess up my system by going on and off the pill constantly. I've also been told that the Diane is quite a strong pill for me to have been on, considering my built (1.52m). Is this a contributor to my dilemma or not?

If you have been off the Pill for 17 months, it would no longer be the cause for the irregular periods. You should see a gynaecologist.
