Hello - When you stop Birth Control, because the amount of hormones contained in your body decreases daily, this can cause a period like bleed or spotting. This usually occurs anywhere between day 2-day 7 of stopping BCP. This is normal and nothing to worry about. But if you continue to bleed for over days then see your doctor for a check up and to rule out pregnancy. Take care.
