BIRTHCONTROL
I RECENTLY WENT OFF THE BIRTHCONTROL AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. I GOT MY PERIOD ON THE 3RD DAY BEING OFF THE PILL. HOW LONG FOR WILL I STILL HAVE MY PERIOD. I HAVE HAD IT FOR 3 DAYS NOW AND I AM FLOWING VERY STRONG AND ARE IN A LOT OF PAIN. ME AND MY HUSBAND WOULD LIKE TO TRY FOR OUR FIRST BABY AND I WOULD LIKE SOME ADVICE ON HOW TO GO ABOUT GETTING MY HORMONES IN PLACE AND WHAT VITAMINS DO I HAVE TO TAKE.

It isn't possible to say how long your first period off the Pill will be. Try Ponstan for the pain. Your hormones should stabilise on their own within three months. You should take folate while planning a pregnancy.
