Coming off the pill Symptoms


Hi All, i stopped my BCP 5 Days ago, and below is todays symptoms! just wondering has anyone had symptoms from coming off the pill and how long does it take to stop? when i came off the pill to TTC #1 i didn't get any of this

Have Not liked today!

Have been tired from the moment i got up,
with a banging headache, really lightheaded, can't concentrate,
have to really look carefully to concentrate on the laptop, feel like i'm on another planet!
Bad AF pains today
not felt nauseous, but i've had that 'i'm really hungrey' feeling from moment i got up, and still even now after eating a big tea! soo strange! :S

Feel really under the weather however not sneazed or coughed once today, strange!?

(Pasted from my TTC Journal)

Thankyou Ladies xx

I came off last month after being on it for 10 years. Didn't get any symptoms at first, apart from my period straight away! Had really bad pains around AF time - cramps, wind, bloatedness so bad I couldn't touch my belly. Then AF came yesterday and worst period pains i've ever had too for almost a day! But I didn't have any problems after 5 days of coming off. x

Have u taken a pregnancy test just to check?

I don't know what the needing to poo feeling is. Sounds strange... maybe you ought to go to the doctors just for a check over make sure all is ok?

I've got some tests coming in the post, so gotta wait till then :\

I think it might be related to my period pain, cause its going down to the top of my legs etc.
i keep thinking it might be pregnancy, but got the feeling that i'm not, the sooner my AF comes the better! not had a bleed for 7 weeks! x

Hi,
I came off the pill (Microgynon) at the begining of the year after 8 years, had my AF on 5th Jan as usual and since then nothing. I'm still just waiting!
I was ok with symptons for about a week and I thought I'd got away with coming of the pill pretty easy, but then I got really bad mood swings, would cry at the smallest thing, really bloated and constipated and bad cramping. I thought that maybe I was preggers but did tests and they came back negative. I then found info on Star Flower Oil and thought I'd try it. Holland & Barrett do some which are high in the active ingredient GLA (230mg I think). After a couple of weeks taking this I felt soooo much better. All the symptons went.
I thought I ovulated a couple of weeks ago so stopped taking it as I've heard it causes uterine contractions so best only to take it up to ovulation and stop in the 2WW. But some of my symptons came back again i.e. bloating, constipation and cramping (I'm not pregnant!) so now I'm going to take it again and not stop until I get a period again. I'm just hoping it comes soon so I know what's what!
:-)
