I stopped taking the pill about 4 days ago and even though I just had my period I started bleeding again today. Is this my period again? I am trying to predict my ovulation.

This is normal; it is known as withdrawal bleeding and occurs when the hormones in birth control pills are withdrawn.

It is also doubtful you will be ovulating this soon after stopping birth control pills.
