Best Answer

After you stop a hormonal Birth Control method like the pill, patch, or ring, you'll probably have your usual withdrawal bleeding, just as you had the month before. After that, you are likely to start ovulating in two to four weeks, and should get your next period in four to six weeks. If you had irregular periods before, they will probably go back to their previous habit. Otherwise, you can expect to settle back into your old pre-ring pattern within a couple of cycles.

Hormonal birth control makes your period lighter while you're on it, so you'll probably notice longer periods with more menstrual flow once you stop.
