How to stop taking the birth control pill?
I've been on the pill (tri-sprintec 28 day) for 5-6 years and want to go off it. I have about a week and a half left in this pack before my next period. Is there a method that needs to be followed to go off the pill? Do I wait until I;ve finished this pack? Or can I just stop taking them now?

Also do I need to consult with my Dr. about my decision to go off of them?

Thanks for reading.

Finish your pill pack. Never stop the pack mid cycle. It can really cause havoc on your body. Finish them out, have a period and then just don't take the pill after that. But do be advised that you may suffer from a few symptoms of "withdrawel" from the pill. You might suffer from some irregular bleeding for the first month, or you might be better then before you started them. Good luck.
