I’m in my 3rd cycle off of BCP. I’ve had 2 periods off the pill and for the first one I bled for like 24 hours and the second it was a little less than that. Anyone else have this after coming off the pill? Or should I be thinking possible PCOS or something? Can a hormonal imbalance be something other than PCOS?

I think some bodies adjust differently to being off birth control. I’ve heard that your first few periods off the pill can be weird. I haven’t experienced it myself, but I know it’s possible.
I would follow up with a doctor if you can. Sounds like it’s worth checking out.

@firefliesinthesky: yeah I have my yearly appt with my gyno in December so I’m definitely going to ask about it. Until then I’m going to keep charting. I know people say they have wonky cycles after bcp it seems like everything I read is about how long it takes to ovulate not much about not bleeding. Makes me nervous, although everything make me nervous in the TTC realm lol

My period lasts about half a day of actual bleeding (light enough for just a lite tampon), then half a day of spotting and random spotting for the next 1-2 days. My doctor said there’s a chance that my cycles could be anovulatory so I’m going through some tests in the next couple of months to find out. He also said it could be due to a thin lining.
It might be worth getting it checked out!
