Coming off the pill... symptoms / changes / ovulation


I came off the pill (Cileste) at the beginning of January and had my period (which was totally normal and 4 days) and after this my husband and I were not careful

I was wondering what symptoms people have experienced when coming off the pill (I was on it for 10 years in total, although I am not brilliant at taking it if I am honest)?

I was really emotional when I came off the pill (yasmin), I used to cry for literally nothing. I burst into tears at work once on a night shift it was so embarrassing! Didn't really have any physical symptoms, I got some dry skin on my face which has gone now and thats it. I wasn't on the pill for as long as you, probably about three years. x

I haven't really had any symptoms, other than the PMS symptoms my pill helped to control are now stronger like they were before I was on it (tender boobies, more cramps) and I've found myself to be more emotional. Also my cycles are now wonky in length!

My symptoms after coming off the pill were very much like pg symptoms for a while. I came off in Jan 2009. Maybe I only noticed them because I was trying to conceive. BE worth checking you are actually ovulating x

DITTO! How long did the dry skin last for!? it came 2 months after coming off pill and still here cycle 6 i've always had the clearest skin!! at least it's not spots though i guess!

My crying episodes have settled down too!

cycle 1 lasted 2 months, then later ovulation for 2 cycles, my ovulation date has come forward to around cd17-18 now which is much better, it was cd24 back in oct/nov!

How do I check whether I am ovulating?

I am feeling really rubbish at the moment, so trying to gain solace in the fact others have been through similar and it won't last for long!

I have had cramps now for almost 2 weeks (mild, but very like the ones I get the day I start my period). I am also absolutely exhausted, to the point I have been concerned I am coming down with something and keep getting a load of saliva in my mouth... Lovely, I know!

Someone tell me this is not going to last!

Well there are many ovulation prediction tests which can be found on the internet for cheap or in boots or other pharmacies. I have just started using them now I am ttc nearly two years on and i bought a pack of 20 first response. They only last a month but I thought this would help me get a good understanding of when I ovulate. I would say that internet cheapies are probably the best bet as you may want to test quite a bit at frst.

Do you think you might be pregnant? x

I don't think so having read the posts etc on here because I only came off the pill in January and this would be my first cycle so very doubtful... The difficult thing is I am not sure when my period will be due because before the pill I would only go 23 days but obviously on it I was like clockwork.

But the cramps have been present now for just under two weeks. However, there are no other 'pregnancy signs' such as nausea etc. so I think this is just my body getting used to not being on the pill.

Hey!

I came off Yaz December 2010 after being on the pill for 10+ years. I'm sorry to say, it's the worst coming off BC. Awful acne everywhere (face, back, chest, neck...), a migraine that went on for a few weeks, weight gain (10 lbs. so far), and bloating/puffiness. I got my first period 22 days after I stopped and another one on January 28 (25 day cycle)... Heavy periods with bad cramps (although this was bad before BC, which is why I went on it in the first place).

The acne is better now (but still not great), still gaining weight and holding on to water, but the migraines are much better.

So how long will it last? Depends on each woman, but in my experience, hormones are going crazy trying to get back to *normal* after stopping BC... The worst was the first 3-4 weeks.

Now just hoping that I will reach some kind of normal cycling so that we get our first I know some women who got PG the first month off! We have not been that lucky.

How long have all of you been TTC since stopping BC????

BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!
