Yes that is normal…. I had my period for 2 1/2 months when i got off of the shot! Your body takes a long time to adjsut to not having that hormone in your body from the BC. If you start passing really large clots, or have heaving bleeding for a long time with no break in between then you should consult your doctor.

Good luck pumpkin! I know it sucks but it wont be like this forever.. promise.

Yup, totally normal! I’ve been on the pill for 4 years now and if I accidentally (bad for admitting this happens) miss a couple pills (always using back up during this time!!) I almost always have a small period, even after my body has clearly adjusted to the hormones.

That happened to me for the first three months I was on the pill, then my body seemed to adjust to it. I would say it’s totally normal, but there’s no harm in just calling your doctor if you’re nervous 🙂

It’s also possible that your body doesn’t really like the pill you’re on. I have been switched around to different pills a few times over the years, and one of them made me spot and cramp pretty much constantly! It sucked. But I told my gyno, and she put me on something different, and presto, no more problems. So if it continues, just let your gyno know that perhaps a different pill is in order. There are soooooo many different formulas out there, and it’s nearly impossible to tell how each one is going to affect you! The one I’m on now completely killed my sweet tooth. Like, even fresh-baked brownies get a “mehhh” from me. Crazy.

Yes, it’s normal, but if it continues, you should talk to your doctor about switching pills.  There’s nothing wrong with you, but different pills work better for different women!
