Period problems: anyone had trouble with periods after contraception?

hi ladies, 

i came off the implant 3/4 months ago after being on it for just over a year. I’ve also been on the Depo injection for around 3 years Before the implant. 

Has anyone else had trouble with periods after contraception or did anyone have to wait months for one? I took a pregnancy test a couple months back but it came back negative. Is it worth me testing again or seeing what my GP suggests? 


  • Yup - me! It took me about 5 months for my cycle to regulate itself after being on the pill - i suggest you download a period tracking app (Ovia or Flow, there are loads) which will help you track ovulation and your periods. Also, you could buy some cheap ovulation test sticks too, and try and pinpoint ovulation?
