Question: stopped period

 clueless - Wed Sep 07, 2005 3:17 pm

I was on the pill (Yasmin) for a month and stopped due to side effects. I have not had a period (almost 2 months) and wondered how long (on average) does it take for the cylce to return to "normal"?

It could take up to a year to return to "normal".

Keep in touch with your physician to make sure nothing else is going on during this time period.
