Q: Will there be a problem after I stop the pill?

A: Your irregular menstrual cycles were probably due to anovulation (no ovulation). While on the pill you menstruate regularly, but it's not due to ovulation. The pill does not really treat the underlying problem of anovulation, so there is a chance that you will have similar problems when you go off the pill. If you don't get your period within two to three months after stopping the pill and you want to get pregnant, you probably should not wait too long before seeing a doctor.
