In brief: Can happen

Some women don't ovulate regularly and that often results in irregular periods.
Being put on birth control pills makes the periods regular, but then when the birth control pills are stopped the period goes back to being irregular, because the person still isn't ovulating regularly. Also some women can take several months for the periods to return to regular once off bcp's.
