I'm not sure how to feel about that, either. Part of me is THRILLED, as I'm sure you ladies can understand. But, part of me thinks something might be wrong. Although, my periods have NEVER been normal. I started taking Ortho in October, but ran into some financial issues and had to stop refilling. I recently got back to refilling, but aren't you supposed to start the pill on the first day of your cycle???? Well, I've been waiting since the week before Christmas, and nothin'!

Can anyone shed some light? Thanks!

Maybe you're still adjusting to the hormonal changes

OR you are pregnant.

Sometimes our periods go "missing" because of a flucuation in hormones...My sister-in-law gained something like 30 pounds and the doctor told her she had more male hormones in her than female hormones...she then went on the Atkins diet, subsequently lost weight and now has gotten her period back.. never hurts to ask your doc about that one..

Good Luck

Go to the doctor. Whether it be hormonal or pregnancy. 3 months is too long to go without a period. You should at least check and make sure everything is okay.
