Stopped taking contraceptive pill, stomach cramps, spotting, missed periods. Side effect of pills or implantation?

Hi. I have stopped taking my contraceptive pill. I had withdrawl bleed mid cycle for 4 days. Saturday gone I got aches down both legs and bad period cramps which lasted an hour then went. Since then I ve felt mild cramps and had brownish thick jelly type mucus when I wipe. My next period is due this weekend. Does this sound like an effect from pills or could it be implantation?

Hello and welcome to HCM,
I understand your problem.

Since you stopped the pills you may be having an ovulation. Sometimes pain occurs during ovulation. It is temporary and goes away after some time. The bleeding may be premenstrual spotting or implantation bleeding if you had unprotected sex. Please wait until this weekend for your periods. If they are delayed then get a urine test done after 7 days to rule out pregnancy.

If the discharge persists then an examination by a gynecologist for other causes like a polyp or erosion may be needed.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
