When should my period become normal after taking birth control pills about 3 months ago ?

I recently got off birth control pills about 3 months ago.I started my period right away normal.In January my period started right on the first of the month and I had it about two weeks straight.It started again the 26th of January and I m still on it as of now.I m 27 years old and have been on birth control most of my life except for a couple times in the past when I stopped.I ve used the shot,patches,ring and pills in the past. I ve noticed I m urinating a lot more frequently,don t know if it s due to drinking more water now & taking vitamins or if it has anything to due to the fact that I stopped taking birth control or something else but it s quite often & quite annoying.I also get pretty bad cramps.When should my period become normal again Please help Thanks Jane

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
You are going thru a phase of hormonal disturbance after pill withdrawal. To decrease the bleeding, you can take Tab. Tranexaemic acid500mg twice daily and also some hormonal tablets will be needed to completely stop the bleeding.
