When stopping birth control after 5 days of using it can you continue spotting for many days?

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.
