I decided to come off my contraceptive pill after I finished

Customer Question

Hi, I decided to come off my contraceptive pill after I finished my last course about 4 weeks ago. My period was due 2 days ago and has not arrived. I have been using protection with my partner during intercourse and I’m just worried that my period hasn’t come. Is it normal for a period to not start on its normal due date after coming off a contraceptive pill? I was on the pill for 3 years.
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: No no pain. My periods were always very regular because the pill regulated them. So I always got my pill the Thursday after I stopped my pill. My pill was a 3 week and 1 week off pill.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I have irritable bowel syndrome. Don’t think that would affect it however

usually you should get your period after stopping the pill

I'll watch and wait for another few days to see if your periods come
