User avatar Hi pokey,
Yes sometimes after stopping birth control pills you become somewhat irregular with your menstrual cycles. Don't be too concerned, you should start your cycles again soon providing there isn't a chance that you could be pregnant of course. If you should happen not to start though in the next couple of weeks you should contact your physician for an evaluation.
