Hi all!

So I was just curious what other women's experiences were with coming off of birth control pills? I stopped mine mid pack as I thought there was a chance I could be pregnant. So now I have been off of it for almost a month and since about day 3 I have felt amazing. I am happier, not mood at all, my skin is better than it was prior to being on BC pills and I just feel so much better. I have been nauseous every day for the last 5 weeks but not sure if that is related or not. Anyways just curious!

I just got off the Implanon due to nightmareish bleeding..I bled for 21 days straight. Exhausting! Ugh. But yeah, I feel the same as you...SO MUCH BETTER not on the BC. Awesomeness!

Just coming off BC pills after being on them for about 6 years.

I'm tired, and uninterested in a lot of things.. I know I'll feel better soon. But I remember from taking a break previously, I felt mildly depressed and spaced out. I think I must be sensitive to the levels of hormones.

It was the same for other female members of my family when coming off the pill though so to be expected maybe?

Got off the pill a month ago. My last period came a day after I stopped. BD only once 3 weeks after I got off POPs. Now I'm 5 days late with cramps. I POAS when I was a day late and got a BFN. I read around in the 'net that it takes most women to have a regular cycle after 2 months after stopping BC. I guess I'm like most women. I hope my cycle will settle soon coz I want to TTC again
Re symptoms... when I was on BC for nearly about a year, my boobs got big... now it kinda shrunk back to its original size which wasn't big to begin with At least my tops fit better now.
I'm still emotional compared to pre-BC. I tear up at the slightest thing most of the time. I hope it'll be gone soon. It's so embarrassing when getting caught crying while watching any sort of inspirational videos

I never liked birth control pills. I always suffered from Headache, Nausea, weight gain etc. I stooped taking about two months ago. Now I feel fresh and alive.
