Is it normal to bleed after you stop taking the pill?
I started taking the pill (Tri-cyclen lo) last wednesday when my period started and was on it for four days (4 white pills). For certain reasons, I decided to get off it. But after 2 days being off that pill, I started bleeding again, and it's been 4 days already. Its that normal?
Your really not suppose to start birth control then stop it. You should always try to finish out the pack, and then let your body have a period. It sounds like your body is just reacting to coming off the pill. If your bleeding gets worse, or pain is accompanied...see your gyn.
