In brief: 1 month
Many studies, over many years, have shown that hormonal contraception (pills, ring, patch) have no effect on fertility or menstrual cycle once they are stopped.
However, once they are stopped, sometimes a pre-existing condition (like irregular cycles) that was hidden by the pill or ring will then become evident - don't blame this on the pill or ring! see your md if problems persist after 3 cycles.

Depends on several issues - why was she on it, how long has she been on it, etc.
If had hormonal probs like irreg periods, then those issues can return or still exist. The longer she was on synthetic hormones the longer it could take - can shut down her hypothalamus which regulates cysles. Go to a4m.Com and physician locator to find functional med doc in your area to evaluate her hormones and help.
