Maybe WNL: What is TTC --?? Try to conceive. WNL is within "normal" limits to have some irregularity after going off pill especially if you had that prior to going onto pill. Give it a few cycles to straighten out and if it does not then see your doctor.

Breakthrough bleedin: Once you stop the bc the body must seek its normal levels of hormones again. You may get some bleeding intermittently while the body normalizes itself. May take a few months
