I went off mine several months ago and still am not even close to regular. I’d been using it for 6 years or so. I have fertility issues though (PCOS and endo) so I don’t expect mine to be regular, ever.

As far as libido, mine honestly doesn’t feel like it’s changed…yet. Granted, my life and schedule has gotten a whole lot busier and hectic lately, so I’m mostly just tired all the time.

@Heartly: AMEN, though my hope is quite diminished. Stupid ovaries. Lol.

@Heartly: I went off in June as well. My cycles are pretty regular, minus some stress related changes either a day earlier or day after with about 4 total days of menses. My sex drive increased dramatically after I went off of birth control.

I’ve been off for about a year now and I did not notice ANY differences with ANYTHING! I was both relieved and a bit disappointed, because like you I was hoping that my libido would change. Oh well, at least my periods aren’t horrible and I don’t turn into a crazy person once a month (which is what I feared!)

I went off bc just under 6 weeks ago after 12 continuous years. It took just over 4 weeks to get a period, and my libido has increased exponentially, and sex is so much better now. It was probably the best thing I could have done for my body. It did take about 3 weeks to notice a change

@Heartly:I’ve been off BC pills for two weeks now and there has been a change in desire for sure.

I went off hormonal bc in February, and I’m just starting to feel more normal. I was told it could take around 6 months.
