Going off birth control

Patient: I went off of birth control pills 4 days ago and started bleeding heavily 2 days later. I also have terrible cramping and lower back pain. Is this normal- should I go to the doctor?

 

 

Doctor: It definitely can happen. I would go see your doctor to be on the safe side.
