Welcome to ehealthforum,
The cause for your absent periods needs to be established. If you have started the birth control pills and take them regularly, you might have the withdrawal bleeding when you finish with the pill pack. You should consider visiting your gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation to look the underlying cause for your absent periods (after you stopped with the birth control use). Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate them. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
