Yes, you can bleed after discontinuing the pill. You know how your period starts when you start the last several pills in the pack? It is because those are placebos (fake pills) which trigger your body to start menstruating. That is what happens when you stop taking the pill. Totally normal!

By stopping birth control you may experience breakthrough bleeding. Breakthrough bleeding is when you menstruate at times when you normally would not begin your menstral cycle. Breakthrough bleeding can possibly last for up to a full period or longer. Stopping birth control may also stop your period for a month or longer or you may not receive your period around the normal time of which you used to when you were taking your birth control.It depends sometimes you're period gets normal after birth control but sometimes it may still keep being irregular.

Some women will have spotting after missing birth control pills, and others will not.

On hormonal birth control your menstrual cycle is suppressed, as you no longer ovulate you no longer menstruate, instead women get a withdrawal bleed due to the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills or stopping the pills. If you come off hormonal birth control then it can take a few months for your menstrual cycles to return thus it can cause irregular or absent bleeding.

Yes the bleeding experienced while taking the inactive pill is not a period, it is withdrawal bleeding caused by hormones dropping. Stopping the pill mid-pack will cause the same withdrawal bleeding. Your periods will resume after your uterine lining starts building up and shedding - if you are not pregnant. It takes 4 to 6 weeks from the end of a packet - stopping mid cycle will cause spotting but should not delay your cycle from returning.

Although few antibiotics decrease the effectiveness of birth control (examples are rifampin, griseofulvin, and some HIV medications), even those that don't cause a decrease in effectiveness may cause irregular bleeding. This bleeding will stop soon after you stop the antibiotics; there is no need to stop your birth control or "take a break" if bleeding starts. Contact your health care provider or pharmacist to clarify any interactions between medications that you are using.

It's possible that breakthrough bleeding could occur as result of taking birth control pills.
