im coming off the pill for health reasons and was wondering how others have found it? im really dreading it , keep imagining that i will be in so much pain and not able to move.
Am i just worrying over nothing? have been on pill about 12 years now.
I came off it in Jan. First cycle was 52 days, second cycle was 42 days. Have experienced nothing out of the ordinary - no pain etc. The only drawback is not knowing when your next AF is.
thanks for your reply winterbride, yeah i never thought of the not knowing when AF is due, thank god im stayin on it till after my holiday
I found when I came off it I felt great, now not that I noticed anything when I was on it, but after I came off I noticed that I wasn't as moody....never went back on it after that.....
I came off it in January and like the OP I have felt great since no mood swings etc! My cycle is still as regular as it was when I was on the pill the only thing is on the first day I do get a lot of pain but once I have my hot water bottle and neurofen plus I am right as rain in a couple of hours HTH
I came off the pill in October and found it fine. like other posters, I have noticed that I'm not as moody and if anything my monthly pains (when I get them) are less than they were when I was on the pill. My cycle is all over the place though, each month my AF are getting further and further apart and I missed it this month. Not preggers, as I have done tests, so I'll just have to wait a little longer for my body to sort itself out.
missi moo moo
Yup ditto above came off in January after 12 years on it, had headaches for the 1st two months but just feel a 100 times better off it and more sexy
Best thing i ever did - the first few mths i was all over the place but once it all settled down it was grand. Now i do suffer with bad period pains but nothing a heat pad and some nueofen doesnt fix
Sorry to sound negative, but I thought I'd feel great coming off it, so was very disappointed.
I came off the pill nearly 18 months ago, and tbh, I was sorry I did. I felt crap, it took ages for my cycle to become regular, and I've noticed that I'm getting horrible cramps every month, and pms
missi moo moo
I suppose everyone is different especially when it comes to things like hormones.
ah that's rotten senorita
