After you stop birth control pills, it can take 6-12 months before your menstrual cycle beomes regular again. You may skip menstruation for a month or you may menstruate more frequently, everyone responds differently. You can easily become pregnant due to irregular ovulation. So be sure to use another form of birth control during this time period.

Expect cycles that are not completely regular, a few days longer and with a heavier flow than you had when you were on the pill.

You no longer will be protected against pregnancy as soon as you stop. Your period may also take a couple months to regulate to your normal cycles. Your hormones will change too and you may see a difference in your libido, and moods.

You will need to use another form of contraception, if you want to prevent pregnancy. Otherwise it is best to stop at the end of a cycle.
