stopped hbc; no period?

I stopped taking my BC pills in the middle of January, and the scheduled end of my last pack. Previous to this, I'd been on HBC for a year and a half or so, and it was giving me anxiety attacks and awful PMS so I thought I'd take a break and see if it improved anything. 

Good news: mentally, I feel awesome.
Bad news: it's been almost 7 weeks since my period. I was almost sure that it was coming this week, but I've been cramping for 3 days with no sign of anything.

I'd be content to just wait it out, but the 2nd week (ish) of being off the pill, my husband and I had sex. We're using condoms and pulling out, but he forgot once and came  in me. Condom was on. Pregnancy isn't a huge concern, but obviously it's a possibility, and I'm sort of frustrated with my body for not giving up the ghost.  

My main question is based on general curiosity:  For those of you who went off the pill after being on for a while, did it take a while for your cycles to get back on track?
