Are you trying regularly to conceive since October, that is since the past 3 months, or has it been longer?

I stopped the pill in October and I had 2 regular periods. After that I still didnt get my period.

Hello again.
After stopping birth control, it may sometimes take upto 3 - 6 months for cycles to stabilize, and for normal menses to resume.
Wait for a couple of months more, and if the irregular cycles still persist, then you need to see an OB - GYN.
You should be having an internal exam, pelvic ultrasound scan, Pap smear and hormonal levels - FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin.
That should reveal a cause for the irregular / delayed cycles.
If this is the first time it has happened after stopping the pill, you can ignore it.
I hope you have taken a pregnancy test by the way ?
