Is it the Pill ??

I want to know if this has happened to anyone before.  I am on my AF again but I just had gotten off of my AF only 2 weeks ago.  It is between light flow and spotting.  I just stopped my pill a week ago.  But what makes no sense to me is I just got off my AF 2 weeks ago.  Is this because I stopped taking my pills??

Yes.  It's chemical withdrawl because you stopped taking your pills in the middle of your pack.  It will act much like a period.  Make sure you use a back up method of birth control.  You can expect a period in another 2 weeks or so.  It may take alittle while for your cycle to regulate again.

Sounds normal. I quit my pills at the middle of the pack too and had bleeding (withdrawal bleeding) so I pretty much had two periods in a month. not a pretty sight! Good luck!

yes, even if you only take one or two pills of a new pack, then stop, you would get another period within 3-4 days. what you experienced was completely normal. anytime you stop pills midpack, you will get a withdrawal bleed/period.

I had a period and then tried Alesse for the first time. well after two days my body broke out into a rash, so I threw the pills in the trash and had another period within a week.

the only time you need to be concerned is if the bleeding gets really heavy and continues much longer than a normal period.
