Borderline: You're really kind of on the borderline of whether you should see your doc or not.It's very normal to experience irregular and variable cycles for up to several months after stopping a hormonal contraceptive.If it would give you peace of mind, then maybe you should just make an appointment and see your doc.They may or may not want to do a blood test or ultrasound.They may tell you this is normal.
