Hi Anzella!

Thanks for you question - the average period lasts about 5 days with many lasting anywhere between 3-8 days. Additionally, our periods sometimes take a couple of months to stabilize after being on the Pill.

Unfortunately it looks like you are not pregnant this time around but good luck and keep trying - it has only been a month since you came off the pill. Pregnancy can happen instantly - or it can take several months or more.

I hope you can update us when you get that big Positive!
