tessadub :  I think you will probably still full on bleed soon. At least something is happening! My first cycle off bcp was 48 days I think… and I’m 99% sure it was wacky like yours is doing too.. I cant remember the exact details or how it came but it wasn’t my norm for sure.. if you don’t get full on bleeding in another week or two, I’d just call your obgyn and ask what they think 🙂

tessadub :  It sounds like spotting. A period begins with the first day of bright red flow.

Three weeks seems like a long time, but I am by no means an expert. I am also on my first cycle after stopping BC and I had 8 days of brown spotting before getting the real deal, so I can sympathize with the confusion about whether it has started or not. I also have had absolutely no other symptoms which is nice, but also kind of weird.

tessadub :  Umm I would think you’d get a period soon but that’s a long time for spotting. I just started my 3rd cycle after coming off the pill. The first cycle I had 5 days of light spotting before AF and this last cycle was even weirder, I had 2 days of light bleeding in the morning followed by spotting then 1 day of spotting, then a day of pink ewcm, then my period started. Our hormones are still trying to regulate after coming off the pill. It’s so frustrating. Keep us updated!

Same here! I have had consistent spotting and no period since quitting BC in January. I made a doc appt. next week to make sure everything looks okay.
