When I first started my bcp I bled for a month while my body adjusted and then after a a year my pill was switched and the same thing happend again bled for almost a month. I was wondering when I go off my pills to try and concieve if the same thing will happen while my body gets adjusted back to normal?

How your body reacts to starting and stopping the pill isn't something that we can predict beforehand. The best you can do, with stopping the pill, is be prepared for erratic menstrual cycles for a while. You may spot, you may have early or late periods, you may have periods that are heavier or lighter than you are used to. There's really nothing you can do to predict or influence that.
