No Period

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this, or have any suggestions.

I went off birth control in June, because my hubby and i discussed it, and we didn't want to prevent pregnancy any more. From june to October, I got my period every 50 or so days. I got my October period....and nothing since. I have taken countless pregnancy tests, had a blood test done by the doctor....and now I am taking this hormone called Medrone, to induce my period...

What the hell???

Has anyone else had this kinda issue before??? Could this be related to coming off the BC???? Very very frusterating, and worrying too....

I was always regular, like clockwork, with my cycles my entire life, until this!!!

What kind of birth control

What kind of birth control were you on? I know there are differences in how you get your period back, I know the shot can seriously ef up you period. Are you taking the hormone under the direction of your doctor? Maybe you can ask him/her about it.

I was on the NuvaRing.

I was on the NuvaRing. Previously I was on the Mirena IUD.

I spoke to my doctor about it, and he is supervising the hormones. I tried to ask him if it was common, but the answer wasn't all that straight. I know that sometimes doctors here do not like to badmouth different drugs, or drug companies. The doctor who put my IUD in, was apparently getting incentives from Mirena (or who ever makes Mirena), for having prescribed them/sold them. I had many many many issues when I had the Mirena, and was told that it was "impossible" for the Mirena to be causing any problems. Eventually I had it out, and all the problems go away.
