I am twenty years old. I just started taking birth control mainly to help maintain my horrible PMS symptoms. I started the pill on August 27th of this year (2012) and continued through the first week of September. I stopped after the first 10 pills due to the side effects. I then got a new pill prescribed by my doctor, and began taking it on the 26th of September when my real period began (after I had been off the pill for a couple weeks). I took the pill just about every day all through October, and then stopped when it came time to take the inactive pills. Instead, I didn’t take any inavtive pills and waited for my period to start so I could begin a new pack. Once my period started, I took about 4 pills of the new pack, but decided to stop due to symptoms returning. When I stopped, naturally my body went through withdrawal bleeding for a couple days.
*I know these symptoms are not from pregnancy, they’re just my body reacting to the pill.
I haven’t been taking any sort of pill since October 29th, and I have been sexually active around 7 times since the 29th through today, without using any other sort of birth control. I know that taking the pill is what stops my body form ovulating, but I have also heard that the body tends to cease ovulation due to the constant intake of hormones. And, until you have been pill free for a while, your body won't ovulate for about a month or so. I am just curious as to what the chances are that my body has or will ovulate again before I start my new pill in December. Getting pregnant wouldn’t at all be an issue, seeing as I am mainly taking the pill due to severe PMS symptoms, not so much to prevent pregnancy. I would just like to know my chances of ovulation due to my inconsistent intake of the pill. Thank you very much for your input in advance.
