Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it's post-pill amenorrhea.

The pill prevents your body from making hormones involved in ovulation and menstruation. When you stop taking the pill, it can take some time for your body to return to normal production of these hormones.

Your period typically resumes within three months after you stop taking the pill.

If you don't have a period within three months, take a pregnancy test to make sure you're not pregnant and then see your doctor and undergo female hormonal panel.

Other possible cause may include Peri-menopause(phase which takes place before the final cessation of periods).
