Thanks for the query.
After stopping the pills it will take some time for regularization of the cycles.
If you had unprotected intercourse during the two pill free months.
You consult gynecologist once and go for pregnancy test.
If the test comes negative, you can take progesterone pills to induce withdrawal bleeding.
After onset of withdrawal bleeding, you can go for pills again as adviced by your doctor.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have not stated your age, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities
No period after stopping the contraceptive pill - must be presumed to be pregnancy, unless proved otherwise. Get yourself tested...
Is it menopause? What is your age?
You should see your gynaecologist again...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
