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.
