The first episode of bleeding after you stop hormonal birth control is a withdrawal bleed; the next will probably be your period, 4-6 weeks after you stop Birth Control.

Hormonal birth control suppresses the menstrual cycles to stop ovulation, thus it will take time for your body to ovulate once you stop taking the birth control. You may get a withdrawal bleed three days after you stop taking a hormonal birth control pill, this is bleeding that mimics menstruation while on the combination pill, caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when you stop taking the active pills.

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.
