I'm thinking of coming off cilest and was wondering how long I would experience withdrawl bleeding for? Also how long does it take for periods to become regular? Thanks.

It depends entirely on the person, some people go straight back to normal, and have no withdrawal bleeding other than what normally comes with a break. For some it can take up to 6 months for natural periods to become regular again.

Thanks, you're always so helpful. If I was to change and try a different pill, can I do it half way through a pack,or do I have to wait till after the seven day break?

I think it would depend on the pill... whether you were changing from a combined or progesterone only (or vice versa) or changing to a different pill of the same type, it also probably depends why you're chainging. The best thing to do is really to ask your doctor on this one.
