@Charlies_Angel:  I think I had some mild cramps when I stopped, as well. I also broke out and was bloated like crazy.  Not sure how long it would have taken for the skin issues and bloating to go away since I got pregnant second cycle off, so my issues were just compouned after that lol.

i was on the pill for 13 years, before stopping it in july.

now when i get my period, i get cramps.

it’s normal.  the pill masked all the symptoms before.

I had HORRIFYING cramping before my first period off BC! (And I NEVER get PMS cramps, so it was super bizarre!)

@BrandNewBride:  Same with me. currently experiencing my first AF after going off BC. Ouch, been cramping all week AND AF is late. Or later than usual since i dont know how long my cycle normally is since i haven’t experienced it for a long time!

I was only off for one month but I had been on for probably 15 years as well.  I didn’t have any symptoms.  My one period off of BCP was a bit crampier than normal but that’s about it.
