Well here is my birth control story, in case it helps anyone else..
When I was around 19, I had a period for about 80ish days. It would not go away. So I went to the doctor and they were like "Here, take birth control pills, this will make it all better."
So I did, and it did in fact make me regular like clockwork. I stayed on until about 3 months ago, when I read Taking Charge of You Fertility and was offended beyond belief at what it was doing to my body. But every time I would ask my doctor what would happen if I stopped birth control, as in, would I go back to having periods all the time again, no one knew.
Well so far I have not had an issue with the periods lasting forever. I was not able to chart accuractly with temperture because I had an ear infection that would not go away, so it made my temps wonky. But I have been checking CM and from what I can tell, I have ovulated twice since stopping the pill. I had one period, but it was quick, only 2 days. However, I had classic "this is a real period" signs such as acne *which I had never had before* and cramps, etc. I think I ovulated the second time a couple of days ago and I did break out again, so perhaps my period is looming again soon.
It is almost fun for me seeing what my body is doing to regulate itself, naturally for the first time in 10 years. I regret staying on the pill as long as I did. Not because of the actual pregnancy prevention, I think it serves its purpose for that, but the way my doctor just put me on the pill and left me on it, without ever trying to find out what the real issue was annoyed me.
But yes, expect wacky cycles fresh off the BC. I think it was over a month and a half before I got my two day quicky period after stopping. I mourned it almost, I am so weird. But something about having a period every month always made me feel healthy, even if it was fake when I was on the pill.
