In short, yes, your menstrual cycle is messed up.

Hormonal Birth Control suppresses your menstrual cycles so that you no longer ovulate, and thus in turn you also don't menstruate either - bleeding you get on the pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when you go into your placebo week. Coming off the pill it takes time for your menstrual cycles to reestablish themselves, you should menstruate within three months but don't be surprised if your cycles are irregular for up to twelve months after stopping hormonal birth control. If still worried about pregnancy then go talk to your doctor to make sure that everything is okay, and maybe look at getting another form of birth control.

What if your nipples have been hurting for the past week If you have stopped taking your birth control 3 weeks ago Is this a sign of pregnancy?

Hello, Your question is: What if your nipples have been hurting for the past week if you have stopped taking birth control 3 weeks ago Is this a sign of pregnancy? Nipple tenderness can indicate pregnancy but unless other symptoms are associated which may also indicate pregnancy then I wouldn't believe this to be purely pregnancy related. When you stop taking birth control, as the hormones withdraw from your system, breast tenderness is not unheard of and neither is abdominal cramping, headaches or nauseous. However, perform a pregnancy test to be certain.

I had cramps starting 1 week after I stopped taking birth control and I dont have a period yet should I be concerned if its been well over a month?

I would recommend you perform a pregnancy test. Birth control can effect your menstrual cycle and can result in delayed periods. Your period should resume its natural rhythm within 2-3 months but if it doesn't see your Doctor.

You stopped talking your birth control 5 days before you were supposed to will that mess your period up?

Yes it can. Because when you take birth control, it is all about regulating your hormones and menstrual cycle. This cycle from birth control protects you from pregnancy. Whether you missed two days, or even if you do not take your birth control everyday at the same time, your period can become irregular, and even worse you are increasing your chance of becoming pregnant. If you have had unprotected intercourse within a near time frame of when you stopped taking your birth control, you may have become pregnant, because you did not properly take your pills. This also means indeed it will mess your period up because you may not get one if you have become pregnant. In this situation, you should think about pregnancy more, if you have had unprotected intercourse, because you may have not been completely protected.

I have been spotting for months since I stopped my depo and now I am feeling weird and the pregnancy tests come back negative I feel pregnant what do you think?

A negative pregnancy test, followed by a repeat test in a week, means you're not pregnant. Many women who are stopping depo attribute all kinds of symptoms to pregnancy. These symptoms may be due to your cycle restarting, or may be unrelated to your reproductive system. If you're trying to get pregnant, see your health care provider, start prenatal vitamins, and stay healthy. If you're trying to avoid pregnancy, find another method of birth control.
