birth control


Question by  TripletNanny (19)

When do you get your period after stopping birth control?

I stopped birth control pills 3 weeks ago.

It depends which pill, if you were on one which had a week of sugar pills your period should be back any day. It can take a while to adjust.

When you get your period is completely up to your body. Sometimes is come a few days after you stop taking it, unless you just had it. Then it may be a few weeks, like a regular period. It varies like periods usually do. It will all depend on your diet and health.

When you stop taking birth control you should maintain your regular cycle. However, your body can take several weeks to respond and begin producing hormones naturally again. If you are worried you are pregnant or have a problem I would suggest seeing you doctor and discussing it with them.

Everyone is different, there is no way to tell - it could even take up to 1-3 months. If it takes more than that, consult your doctor for a blood test.

After stopping birth control your period will come regularly. If you stopped taking your pills 3 weeks ago, it should have come as soon as you stopped. If this didn't occur it might be best if you go to the doctor. Either way that is the way it should work.

Your cycles should go back to their normal length fairly quickly, so it should come at the same time after your last period that it did before you were taking the pills. If your cycle is normally shorter or longer than 28 days, it will probably go right back to how it was.
