In the middle of a pack of Seasonique, I stopped taking it at the advice of my gynecologist. This was on July 16.
I had been having problems with spotting that weren't going away. A couple days after I stopped, the bleeding got heavier (seemed more like a normal period) and stopped about 5 days later.
Before I went on the pill, my cycle was fairly regular - 28-32 days.
My question is, is when should I expect my period now? I don't know if I've ovulated since being off, and today is day 29 since I quit and I have not gotten my period. I have had sex about 4 times (using a condom) since going off the pill.
Any advice on when I should expect my period and when I'd need to be concerned?

Nope, not if you're using condoms correctly. If you want to take one for your own peace of mind, that's a different issue, but it's really not necessary.
