Does this mean my cycle is already out of whack? I had a 2 day period and then kinda spotted yesterday and now nothing...First I have a 25 day cycle which is way shorter than I've ever had and then a 2 day period and now nothing...
I'm glad I "o"ed already but this is weird with the rest of it...
Remember that the BCP works by keeping the lining of your uterus thin to prevent an embryo from implanting if you happen to conceive (which is why periods are often lighter and shorter on some forms of the BCP). So after you discontinue it, it can still take a few cycles for th uterine lining to build up again. Try to expect the unexpected for awhile, then it won't be so frustrating when your body does weird things.
Like Shawna said, it really can take a while to have your body go back to "normal" after ceasing BCPs. Just keep plugging away though...it'll be good for you to see how it all levels out--and who knows, it might happen sooner rather than later!
