You might well ovulate two weeks after the commencement of the withdrawal bleed. When I cam off the pill (23 years ago I admit but they had more hormones then too) I took my temperature for the first month and ovulated exactly on time.

Does stopping your birth control in the middle of a pack make your period kick in. I stopped taking them 1 week in and my period has started again only after 12 days could that be why?

Hormonal birth control pills work by suppressing your menstrual cycle so that you no longer ovulate, as you no longer ovulate it means that you no longer menstruate - the bleeding you get while on the pill is not menstruation, it is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in hormones when you go from active to inactive pills. Thus if you stop taking the pill the drop in hormones will have the same effect; a withdrawal bleed.

Is it normal to not get your period at all when taking the birth control pill?

Yes, this is normal. Hormonal birth control pills work by suppressing your menstrual cycles so that you no longer ovulate, as you no longer ovulate it means that you no longer menstruate - the bleeding women get while on the pill is withdrawal bleeding caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills. The bleeding women experience on the pill is not a true period. Note: Irregular bleeding is normal the first three months on the pill. You should still experience a withdrawal bleed, although there are differing views on the idea of 'menstrual suppression' (stopping menstruation and withdrawal bleeds all together) there are health implications to consider before considering this option. If you're supposed to get a withdrawal bleed on your birth control but aren't then it's a good idea to talk to your doctor.

Can you have breakthrough bleeding after you stop taking the pill?

In terms of word choice, "breakthrough bleeding" is bleeding when you expect the hormones in birth control to stop bleeding. On the other hand, "withdrawal bleeding" is what you have when you stop taking active pills -- whether temporarily, as during the pill-free interval, or when you quit the pill altogether. It's normal to have a withdrawal bleed after stopping the pill. You can expect a normal period in four to six weeks.

Why do you get your period after you stop taking birth control?

Hormonal birth control such as the combination pill works to stop the menstrual cycle so that a person doesn't ovulate, as you don't ovulate you also don't menstruate. Bleeding experienced on hormonal birth control like the combination pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills. This withdrawal bleed has some of the benefits of menstruation and a lot of people prefer to see a bleed as it reassures them they're not pregnant.

Why does missing birth control pills cause bleeding?

When taking birth control pills the bleeding you get each month is withdrawal bleeding and not a "regular" period that comes on its own. So when you miss a few pills the withdrawal from them starts up the bleeding. The steady hormones in the pill keep the uterine lining thin. When you skip the pill for a few days, the pill hormone levels go way down (it takes the body about 24 hrs to eliminate the hormones in one pill). This withdrawal of pill hormones destabilizes the uterine lining and you get spotting/bleeding [thus, the name: withdrawal bleeding].

What you experienced is the withdrawal bleed which is caused by the hormones decreasing from your system. After the withdrawal bleed occurs, this means your body is begining to ovulate again and you're at risk of pregnancy. There is no accurate way of saying when your period will arrive. It can be anytime after the withdrawal bleed upto 4 weeks.

Can the bleeding after missing a birth control pill be seen as menstrual?

When you're taking the birth control pill, you don't have a menstrual period. Instead, you have withdrawal bleeding. Menstrual periods are vaginal bleeding the follows ovulation by 14 days.
