does getting off the birth control pill affect my period cycle?
When you stop taking birth control pills, it’ll take your body and menstrual cycle some time to adjust, the same way it did when you started taking them. You might notice some spotting or bleeding between your periods, and your periods might be slightly irregular for a few months. But this is temporary, and your cycle will pretty quickly return to what it was before you started the pill.
