Hi, This is not uncommon. I know a Woman who did not have a period for 5 months after stopping Birth Control pill and there was no medical cause for this. In most cases, you need to rule out pregnancy. Once this has been ruled out, if your period doesn't arrive within 2-3 months and you are definitley not pregnant, then it is due to the hormones contained in birth control pills still remaining in your system. This can make your period very late or arrive early because your body suddenly experiences flare ups of hormones and then the next day no extra hormones. This can confuse your cycle. But if you are worried see your doctor hun.

When do you get your period after changing from Depo-Provera to the birth control pill and stopping the pill?

It can take anywhere from days to 18 months for your period to return after stopping Depo Provera. Taking the birth control pill doesn't change that timing -- the birth control pill doesn't "jump start" or "regulate" your period after stopping Depo Provera. Remember that you can get pregnant before your period restarts, so if you don't want to conceive right now, get on an effective method of birth control.
