Could you be pregnant? It could be implantation bleeding (I got pregnant while on the pill and had bleeding like that when I should have had a period).

Otherwise, it is just your body reacting to the lack of hormones, or possibly stress!

I agree that it could be your body reacting to the lack of hormones. When I came off the pill, I had a normal period, but then had some major cramping when I didn’t start my next pill pack. It lasted for quite some time…a few weeks on and off, and I didn’t get my next period unil almost 90 days after my last one.

If you’ve been on the pill for a while, your body might react differently once you’re off for a while. Just keep your doctor informed of what’s going on and call them if you feel as if things are just not right at all!

Whether or not you take the placebos has NO effect on your period.  All they are is sugar, there are not any hormones in the placebos.  Because of this, it is way too early for your body to know that you have stopped taking the pill – it won’t know until you miss several days of pills at the next cycle.  If I were you, I would take a test every couple of days until you get a “normal” period, but I also wouldn’t worry too much – it is highly likely that your stress/anxiety/excitement is affecting your cycle.

@PrncssDva:  I totally get what you are saying.

FWIW – my first period off the pill (when my body didn’t know any different) was “normal”, but my next one (off the pill) was super light (yet with all the hell-hath-no-fury PMS of my high school period).

@PrncssDva:  Totally.  I would enjoy it.  :o)

I know that you are just going with the flow, which is awesome (I wish I was not so overly anal retentive and could do that), but you might want to consider charting.  It has been a lifesaver for me only in that I actually know when to expect that darn AF.
