Coming off the pill

Hi all; I came off the pill 5 weeks ago to start ttc our first. I've been on the pill for 12 years. Since I came off I've had non stop bleeding; some days like a full heavy period others spotting but enough to need sanitary wear. I'm definitely not going to be ttc anything at this rate and it's really getting me down. Any hints/tips ideas?

I'd go back to the GP. That much bleeding could make you anaemic and studies suggest that low iron inhibits fertility...

I would definitely go to your gp. I have come off the pill 3 times ttc and I haven't had any withdrawal bleeds for any of them (different mini-pills each time) I got a normal period between 4-6weeks after last pill.

I know most people do have withdrawal bleeds but yours sounds very excessive!
