    Question Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo BCP- Breakthrough Bleeding

    Hi, I've taken Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo (25grams) for 13 days total then I decided to stop it. (I stopped on a Sunday because that's what I heard one should do if one wanted to stop) Today is the 4th day after I stopped taking the pills and I have been having breakthrough bleeding for 3 days. They look like regular periods, not too heavy, but not light either. I know this is probably a side effect of going off the pill, but does anyone know how long this bleeding will last?
    I was only on the pill for a short amount of time (13 days).

    You will probably have a regular period.

    Your body is probably trying to balance out the hormones right now. You might get your period early or late depending on how long it takes for your body to adjust. Breakthrough bleeding is normal with any type of hormonal change in a woman.
