I’ve started a few threads that are related to this.. about sex drive coming back, etc. But did you feel better or worse after coming off of the pill? I’ve been off of Orth-Tri-cyclen for about.. a month & a half now. I use a period tracker on my phone, to keep up with the length of cycles. I’ve been pretty regular so far, I think they’ve only been different by a day compared to when I was still taking the pill. According to the app, I ovulated around the 1st or 2nd of this month. I’m pretty sure I did, because I was having quite a bit of cramping. I’m still having cramping, along with tender nipples.. the cramps kind of feel like period cramps, but it’s not due until Feb. 15th.
So my question is that, are these side effects from coming off of the pill? Are they usual side effects? While I was on the pill, I never had nipple tenderness before period, and if I had cramps.. they were maybe a day or two before my period. But I’ve been a lot more crampy now that I’m off of it.
What were your side effects, if any? Did you feel better than when you were on the pill, or worse?
