Boycott, it can take a couple of months for your body to regulate on the pill. I took about 3 months. Now I can almost even predict the hour my period will start. If things haven't settled down by the 3rd full month, I talk to your doc about it to see if another BCP or other BC option might work a bit better.

I was just recently diagnosed with PCOS. I have had pretty regular cycles my whole life, but the last month or two I had issues that led to my eventual diagnosis. I was told to start taking BCP the Sunday after I started my next period. I bled on a Saturday and started taking the pill the next day. However, my bleeding stopped by Monday, so I don't know if I starting taking the pills at the right time or not. I just decided I had better keep going with them. It's been almost 3 weeks, and I'm due to start taking the sugar pills this Sunday (it's Thursday) and I just started bleeding.... Now I'm worried. Is it normal to take a month or 2 for the pills to start regulating the cycles or is there something wrong?
