the past few days I have been so emotional & mood-swingy, and just fully PMS-ing. I haven't had PMS like this in AGES... like since I was TTC Gaby. Has anyone else found that their mood swings and/or PMS has gotten worse after going off the pill???

I'm not complaining, I like that my body is being MY BODY & not controlled by drugs... but I'm not so sure it's normal?

Yup. Everything was really messed up after coming off the pill. Of course, I got pg 6 weeks later so it didn't last for long... LOL

This is a completely normal part of the transition of coming off the pill. Consider it hormonal chaos while your body gets used to not having synthetic hormones on board and trying to get back into the swing of doing it's own hormonal work. It's a big transition! Hang in there, it will settle down with a bit more time!

I was the same! I had mood swings, got a bit depressed, head aches, and cramping. All to stop getting pregnant, I think I would rather get pregnant!

Its the problem with hormonal BC.

I love the fact that I have my body back, though Mark stil says I'm moody lol!

I just got off birth control, and I've noticed that I am more myself... the BCP made me soooooooo hormonal, I was getting into fights with DF nearly every day. Now we're doing much better. I have had a few days where I'm a little wacky, but I think that's mostly my Bi-Polar. I am SOOO glad to be off it though and finally in charge of my own fertility!

When I was on NUVA ring I had that...then being lazy I got the DEPO SHOT once and I'm still on it till June 4th when I am due to get the next. It totally wacks me out. I'd rather chart and know my body any day to these whacked up hormonal changes from synthetic hormones.
