It depends on your own body, health, how long you were on hormonal Birth Control, and whether you had any hormonal problems prior to going onto hormonal birth control.

It can take up to twelve months for your cycles to regulate once you stop taking the combination pill as it takes time for your body to reestablish normal hormonal balance. This does not mean that you will not menstruate, after your initial withdrawal bleed coming off hormonal birth control you should menstruate within three months - if you don't then talk to your doctor.

You should have a regular period within a month of ending your last pill pack.

My period still isn't regular after a year though, so I guess it all depends on how your body adjusts.
