Its due to the decreasing amount of hormones in your body from the pill. Dont worry.

There isn't anything that you can do to stop the side effects of stopping birth control pills.After stopping birth control you may most likely experience spotting or breakthrough bleeding. This is simply your body ridding the hormones out of your body. If you had irregular periods before starting the pill, you will have irregular periods again after stopping birth control.

Yes it is possible to experience an irregular menstral cycle when you discontinue taking birth control. This is because when you take birth control it actually regulates your period. 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. It depends on the person and or pills

Your first period after stopping birth control pills will normally arrive in 4-6 weeks. If your periods were irregular before you went on the pill, they're likely to return quickly to their previous irregular pattern.

After stopping birth control, your period is likely to return to its previous pattern. If you were irregular prior to starting the pill, you're likely to be irregular after you stop.

Yes, when you stop birth control pills, the hormone levels in your body drop. Then you have withdrawal bleeding.

User Avatar

Hi, This is most likely the withdrawal bleeding and this is normal. It does occur a few days after stopping birth control.

The birth control implant can cause irregular bleeding or spotting. The color may be red, brown, or black.

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.

If you used the birth control pill as directed, bleeding is not a sign that it's not working. There is no additional risk of pregnancy while bleeding.

The birth control pill could mask irregular bleeding that sometimes occurs in hyperthyroidism, but will not mask other symptoms.

It's normal to have bleeding after stopping the birth control pill.

When you stop taking birth control you can now become pregnant. If you had an irregular period before birth control pills, your period will go back to irregular periods. Heavier and longer periods may occur as well. You may also experience withdrawal bleeding which your body's way of ridding the birth control hormones.

When you stop the birth control patch, you will probably have withdrawal bleeding, as you typically have during your patch-free week. After that, if you had regular periods before you started the patch, you'll probably ovulate in two to four weeks, and get your first post-patch period in four to six weeks. You can get pregnant before your first period after stopping the patch. If your periods were irregular before the patch, they're likely to return to that irregular habit after you stop.

Birth control pills like LoEstrin are prescribed for a myriad of reasons, including control of irregular bleeding or excess bleeding, hormonal support, hormonal regulation, control of endometriosis, reduction in painful periods, and others.

This is the withdrawal bleed. It will occur 7-14 days after stopping the pill.

User Avatar

That's normal. Just as stopping the active pills (typically after three weeks) leads to period-like withdrawal bleeding, stopping your birth control pills at any time in the cycle may lead to period-like withdrawal bleeding.

It could be pregnancy related but it is very difficult to answer unless you see your doctor for a blood test. The blood test will confirm or rule out pregnancy. If your on birth control or have recently stopping taking birth control, this can cause the very light period and so can a hormonal inbalance and irregular periods.

Yes, you should always continue to take your birth control unless your physician tells you to stop. Stopping your birth control and having unprotected sex will make you become pregnant. If you are experiencing any bleeding before the expected date or time of your period, you are most likely experiencing spotting or breakthrough bleeding. This is bleeding that is not considered a period, it is however a side effect from birth control that can last up to 3 months when you first begin birth control.

In the first three months of using hormonal birth control, a woman may have irregular bleeding. This side effect improves with time.

Well bleeding is normal after stopping your pills. And by the way if you are having your period your not pregnant. It's only when you don't have your period for a while should you think you are pregnant.
