Yes! This can be very normal. It's all in what kind of bc you were using. I used depo for about a year and didn't get a period for a little over a year after stopping. Hello there. Yes this is quite a common occurance in a lot of women after stopping birth control pills. Some lucky women go on to have regular monthly periods while the majority of women, experience irregular periods for a few months after stopping Birth Control. It generally takes around three months for birth control to be out of your system so by the fourth or fifth month of stopping the pills, your periods should be becomming more regular.
