This is the withdrawal bleed. It will occur 7-14 days after stopping the pill.
Hi, This is most likely the withdrawal bleeding and this is normal. It does occur a few days after stopping birth control.
I need to know this. I asked my doc and she said yes. I stopped taking the pills during my spotting/ bleed and have continued to bleed so not sure which is which.
This happened to me today, when I started taking it.
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.
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.
After taking six weeks of active birth control pills without the pill-free week, you can expect withdrawal bleeding when you take a pill-free week. You may also have unpredictable bleeding.
All of them. There is no medical need to have a period. While taking the pill the lining of the uterus stops building up the way it does without BCP. The bleeding every month is actually withdrawal bleeding in response to hormones dropping when the pill is stopped for a few days.
No as you have stopped taking the pill you can get pregnant the first time you have sex.
Go see a doctor.
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.
