Abnl period: not uncommon when going off pill. See what happens over next 2 cycles and if still irregular talk to your gyn. Hope this helps. Good luck

Likely normal: Member756, Irregular periods are often normal when stopping a birth control pill. In addition, you had an IUD placed which for the first several months can cause irregular periods. I would give it a couple of months to regulate, and make sure you follow up with your gynecologist if the irregularity continues. Thank you.
