What happens after stopping birth control?


Answer by  Kriket (1029)

After you stop hormonal birth control you body starts making it's own hormones again when it notices the drop in artificial hormones. This could take a few months to regulate.

If you stop using birth control, your body will fall back into its natural hormonal rhythms. If you have not hit menopause, this means a return to fertility and possibility of getting pregnant. If you do not want to get pregnant, use a mechanical means of contraception like a condom.

Your body returns (in a few months) to its regular cycle and you can once again get pregnant, so be careful.

After stopping birth control, you may experience severe cramps, a slight urge to urinate more frequently, slight fluid drainage and other small cramps. Stopping birth control has about the same side effects as starting it.
