@emmanneliza:  I was a PSYCHO the month I went off BC. Seriously psycho.

It was like the worst PMS of my life for 6 WEEKS before I FINALLY got my period and it levelled out.

Then *BAM*! Pregnant that month, and I’ve been a crying mess ever sense!

YES! I was moody, irritable, sad, cranky, bloated the entire first two months off the pill I gained 8 lbs and my face broke out.  MISERABLE!  I’m on the my third cycle off the pill and finally feel more normal.  Stick with it – hormones are powerful stuff!

I was OK my first month off the pill (except for a day or two of major moodiness right around ovulation and right around when I got my period).  But now, in my second cycle off, I’ve been majorly moody.  Like tonight, I’ve been such a grump – DH was asking my about my day and what was bad, and the only thing I could think of was that my grocery list got deleted from my computer.  Not really enough reason to be in a terrible mood, but I just feel so out of sync.  I think it just takes a little while.  Or at least I hope so! 🙂

My first 3 cycles off of BCP were quite emotional. Things started leveling off in my 4th cycle. I’m on cycle 5 now and finally feel like I am back on an even keel.

@emmanneliza:  I’m in my first month off too. I’m hoping for a regular luteal phase which means period should be coming a week from today. Last night I was hysterically crying asking DH if he still loved me bc he had asked me to stop  slurping my soup bc the sound was driving him crazy. I don’t know what came over me but I can only attribute it to wacked out hormones. I was Sobbing. Over soup. Sigh. Coming off BC is an adventure!

@SeaTurtle88:  Ha, the day I ended up starting my period after my first cycle (a few weeks ago), I burst into tears after my DH asked me if I wanted coffee…..he was so confused!  I didn’t even know why I was crying, I just suddenly felt sad.  I feel your pain!
