Quitting birth control : COLD TURKEY!

Thursday night my husband threw out all of my birth control! It makes me so sick, he said hes tired of seeing me in pain. I am going back to the doctors for a different method. I was going to start the last week in my pill pack. I am bleeding, I think its my period as I was suppose to start anywhere from Sun-Sat. SO. My question is, will this hurt since I'm stopping cold turkey? (orth-cyclen)

  • No health issues. You will just start your period and will be able to get pregnant.
