I was on the pill for just over 2 years this time
My cycle was 28/29 days before so went back to that
Came off pill end of July 08 but didnt start trying properly until about Nov and have a feeling my periods came back properly in Jan but not certain as may have been an early m/c
Got pregnant Feb but m/c at 5 weeks
Pregnant again end march and now 9 weeks

hope that helps

a)6 years or so.
b)it didn't- the morning I found out I was pregnant I was thinking of going to the doctors to ask if everything was normal, my cycle was about 35 days, whereas before I went on the pill it was always 28 days. Luckily I did a test before going to the doctors (was convinced it was going to be negative)
c)6 months.
