Bleeding every alternate week after getting off the pill, have boils on back. Normal thyroid, hormonal levels, wbc count. What is the cause?

I was on the pill for two years, I came off of it in Nov 2011, my periods were fairly regular up until June, and I have been since having them every other week. I have also been having really bad problems with boils and spots, especially on my back which has become extremely embarrassing, I have never really had any problems with spots this badly since I was in my early teens. I am now 20years old, and I don t want to go back on the pill or be on regular antibiotics , I would like to know why my body is going through puberty again. I also have had my hormone levels checked, thyroids and everything is ok. White blood cell count ok.

Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

Prolonged use of pill with discontinuation may result in irregular periods in initial periods. Body hormones do need time to get adjust to normal cyclical changes.

Boils on back could be due to skin infections. Depending on severity you may need topical cream or tablet form of antibiotic treatment.
