Re: What happens after bcp?
You asked the question I have been wondering about too. I am on my 5th month of BCP and going to stay on thru the fall. But, like you I wonder how heavy and long the bleeding will be again. That is why I started on BCP in the spring was for the non-stop heavy periods. Is a hysterectomy your only choice? Were you having bad periods when you started on the pill? My GYN said the pill should get my hormones straightened out some so when I come off the pill things shouldn't be as bad. I will have to see that to believe it. Just watch your iron count until you the situation under control. I got anemic pretty fast from the bleeding. I read a post on another board where a lady bled heavy for 70 days then just stopped out of the blue and that was the end. Never had a period again. Good luck, Ann
