Yes, that is the same pill I take. It is the generic brand of Ortho-tri cyclen. As far as when you may start your period after being off the pill, it is more of a case by case situation. Everyone's body is different, so there is no telling when it will be back to normal and in full swing.

If it's taking too long your doc might be able to prescribe you drugs that can trigger your cycle.

I was off of it for only 3-4 months and never had one so thats why i was asking to see if anyone has had that problem on this pill...im going to finish out this pack of pills and stop them and wait like 6 months and see what happends then and if nothing then i'll go to the doctor and see whats going on....can a pap smear tell you if there is anything wrong like that..with not having a period? I know it test for cervical cancer but i didnt know if it would tell you why you miss periods or dont hace any at all! Thanks everyone for all your help! Ashley

That sounds like a good plan.

There are a few different reasons you wouldn't be getting a period, I don't think a pap would do much for that. However, your doc would know what to look for.
