I started taking birth control because I had very heavy and abnormal bleeding as a teen and have now been on it for almost 10 years and have finally decided it's time to stop taking it and try for a baby. So I called my OB and let her know that I was going to stop taking it and she said that was fine but it would take my body 2-3 months to return to "normal". And also to start taking prenatal vitamins. I took my last Yasmin birth control pill on August 5, I started my period on August 11th and it was a lot heavier then normal but only 5 days long. Now on the 18th I am crapping and spotting again after only 3 days of my period ending. Is this normal? Should I call my Obgyn? I know it's gonna take a little bit for my body to get back to normal but I didn't think I would be like this and I can't help but be excited to try and make a baby (not to mention my libido is coming back lol), which is hard to do if I'm bleeding. Also, if anyone else has been through this I would love to hear what you went through when you got off the pill and how long it took for you to conceive. Thanks for everything!
