6 weeks off the pill

I stopped the pill mid cycle/pack because of the depression issue it caused.  I got my period 4 days after, as I expected.  Im now 4 days late with no period and no + pregnancy test (yes. I took 5 over the past few days).  Im also 43 years old ... so i worry about menopause (and Ive had hot flashes for about three months now). 

Dose this wound "normal"?  Ive read quite  a bit about it on line and I know that stopping mid pack is not a really good idea, but the depression was too bad (Im am great now by the way) ... hope I didnt screw anything up.

Thanks

I think that your cycle is probably messed up a little from stopping mid pack, and even just coming off the pill altogether. It could take a couple of cycles for your body to get all the hormones out and get back to normal.

Darn pill can really mess with your body! I think you were smart to stop it when you did because of depression, you don't want that to continue. I hope you that your cycles get better for you.
