Heavy bleeding

I stopped taking birth control almost two months ago.  My first period was somewhat normal and I have started my second period sooner than I should have and it is very heavy and with some clots.  Is this normal due to stopping taking birth control?  I was on it for 8 years straight.

Hormones will do funny things to your cycle.  I'd call your physician and maybe ask for an exam.  Periods are always heavier off birth control pills than on.  But do consult with your physician.
