Brief Answer:
It depends on when you stop it.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

It depends on when you stop it. Usually you will get periods within 5-6 days of stopping nordette.

So if you took last nordette on Aug 4 then you will get periods within august 10 th.

If you are not getting side effects it is good and DOES NOT mean the drug is not working.

Some women do not get side effects normally.

Hi

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX

Yes, your withdrawal bleeding will become your new monthly period.

That means every month you will now get your periods around the time you had withdrawal bleed ie near 10th of a month.

Brief Answer:
hi

Detailed Answer:
Dear,

Because you are on hormones which itself is a cure for breast tenderness and cramps.

During normal periods hormones go down slowly over many days before menses and during this time you have breast tenderness and cramps due to the deficiency.

But here you are stopping suddenly and menses comes before there is time for breast tenderness and cramps.
