Period: If you have recently sopped an oral contraceptive, it can take a cycle or two to get back to normal pattern. If you are sexually active always possible to be pregnant. If so check home pregnancy test. If negative reasonable to give your body a chance to get back to normal cycle. If still irregular after a month or two then I would be seen.
