pregnancy or off pill symptoms

Hello everyone. My husband and I recently made the decision to go off the pills. I stopped taking them mid way through my first week. I stopped my period last Tuesday and today, 6 days later, I am bleeding, worse then my regular period. Is this a symptom of coming off the pill or am I having ovulation bleeding? I have decided that I am never going on the pill again, I can't believe how messed up it has made my body! Any advice would be wonderful!

Thank you for the advise. I have stopped bleeding but now I am experiencing extreme fatigue and I am nauses off and on throughout the day. I am also expieriencing some aching in my legs. Could these be pregnancy symptopms? I know it would be early, maybe only two weeks along. I stopped the pill almost two weeks ago. Is it possible to ovulate right after stopping? If so, could I be experiencing pregnancy symptoms? I testest on Monday and it was negative. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
