Off Birth Control

So this is my first month off of birth control and i thought my period would be heavier, or different then my cycle on the birth control. But everything seemed to have stay pretty consistant just with lighter bleeding. when i was on the pill i had a "medium" flow for 5-7 days. is it normal to have just a light period for 4 or 5 days when you go off of it? or does everyones body react differently?

Each period is different and the consistency of the flow doesn't matter. It could be light for 2 days and still be a normal period. It will take time for your body to adjust as well.

Everyone's body reacts differently, but I also had an easier period after birth control.  I would have a period for about 5 days or so while on the pill, but it was about 3-4 days and lighter without the pill.
