When should I get my next period if I stopped taking pills mid cycle and 3 days later had a period for 5 days?


Answer by  4lizzieb (120)

You should expect to get your next period on roughly whatever schedule you would normally have, when they are not regulated by your birth control.


Answer by  ts9818a (139)

It is impossible to know for sure. The pill I assume you mean is the birth control pill, which helps to regulate your cycle; however, by stopping the pill you have ceased this regulation. It will take your body some time to regain complete control, thereby causing irregular cycles.

Your cycle should re-establish itself within 30-45 days after you took the last pill. There is no set rule; it's entirely up to your body.

You will likely be on a new 28 day cycle starting from your last 5-day period. However, if part of the reason you were on the pill was to combat irregular periods, then your periods might be irregular again.

If you're no longer on the pill then your cycle should go back to every 28 days or so. Otherwise it will come when you stop taking pills again.
