You need to see a doctor to figure out why your cycles are irregular.

Coming off the pill your periods will be irregular for up to 12 moths while your body adjusts to being back on your normal menstrual cycle, but if you didn't have a menstrual cycle to start with then there was a reason for that. Go to your doctor and have them run tests to figure out what's wrong.

It can take a while for the body to regulate itself after stopping Birth Control, but I would visit a doctor just to check there is no problems.

Irregular periods are often perfectly normal, but not always. If you have not been using another form of birth control, and you have been sexually active, it is wise to have a pregnancy test. Spotting similar to a period can happen in pregnancy. Did you have regular periods before going on the shot? If so, your period will usually normalize after a while. See a physician to be certain of the cause of your irregular periods.

If your cycles were irregular before, you will likely return to your previous pattern of irregular periods.

Spotting before your period may indicate several things: * Earlier than normal period without a physical reason. * Pregnancy bleeding. * Bleeding caused by starting/stopping birth control. * Bleeding caused by taking MAP/Plan B recently. * UTI. * Hormonal Imbalance. * Begining of irregular periods cycle. * Because you have irregular periods. * Hormonal imbalance. If you recently had unprotected sex and your period doesn't arrive in 3 weeks then perform a HPT.
