    Its prolly just withdrawl bleeding which is totally normal. I'd wait another month or so and see if after about 4 weeks you have what seems to be a period. Usually when coming off the pill(especially mid-pack) you get withdrawl bleeds. I was on the pill as well for 11 yrs and I came off the pill after I finished my pack which helped with my bleeding schedule lol. However I did go for 2 months without a period which had to be induced by my dr. But the following month I finally had a period come and go all on its own. So give it time and wait about a month and see if you get what seems to be a "normal" period. Good luck!!

    The first bleed when you stop taking the pill is a withdrawal bleed and not a true period. Ovulation wise, i'm not sure whether it would start after the first withdrawal bleed or first true period. Then again some women have problems with their cycles after stopping taking the pill. It varies from person to person. Sorry can't be of more help xx

    you ovulate around the 14th day of your cycle, your 1st day being the first day of your period, so roughly 2 wks after your period starts.
    good luck

    Everyone's right...its just a withdrawal bleed. Your true period will probably come soon after that.
