The way that a woman’s hormones are affected by the birth control pills that she takes varies depending on the situation that led the woman to begin taking birth control pills as well as the actual pills that she is taking.
Some women are prescribed birth control pills because they have certain medical issues that cause their hormones and menstrual cycles to become unbalanced and irregular. When a woman stops taking birth control when she has one of these conditions, it will take a while before her hormones return to a natural pattern.
Likewise, there are some birth controls that prevent a menstrual cycle from occurring as long as the woman is taking the birth control. It may also take some time for her hormones to return to normal after she stops taking the pills in order to become pregnant.
The most common types of birth controls allow a woman’s body to return to normal fairly quickly after she stops taking the pills. However, there are some that can affect her hormones and will cause it to take longer for her body to return to normal after she stops taking them.
