Be patient: Birth control pills contain estrogen which suppresses ovulation by inhibiting normal fluctuations in your body's own hormones. It may take up to several months for your body to get back into its natural hormone cycle and it is not unusual after coming off birth control. Maintain a healthy diet and keep a regular sleep schedule. If you do not have your cycle back in 4-6 months seek help.
