    I had a few questions, hopefully some of you gals can help answer. Here is my background...

    I just got off birth control, January is my first month not taking my pills, I have had three somewhat "periods" this month, which is probably breakthrough bleeding.

    1.) How long does it usually take to get the breakthrough bleeding to be done?

    2.) How would I know if it's a normal period or breakthrough period?

    3.) Any hints or tips that could help me get through the breakthrough period?

    --Thank You Everyone, Stephanie

    Hi Stephanie,

    I haven't had breakthrough bleeding on the pill so I'm not speaking from experience, but usually when you come off the pill you have a withdrawal bleed and the next proper bleed will be a period. It might take a few weeks or months for that while your body gets back to normal.

    Is it like a period or is it more like spotting?

    If you're having spotting it's probably just your body adjusting to being off the pill but if it keeps up you might want to check with your doctor.
