I do understand your concern, but would like to assure you that most irregular menstrual periods are benign. It is truee that going of the pill can make your period irregular and it may take some time to get back to normal. It is most probable that the OPC would have resulted in your irregular period. Sometimes in the first 2 to 3 months after women start taking contraceptives pills, irregular menstruation might be irregular. However if the bleeding continues or the periods are still irregular after 2-3 months, I would advise you to consult with your doctor.
