@Rachel631:  First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. I lost an uncle last weekend to cancer. Very difficult. 

Next, yes your body is probably going through hormonal changes. My first month off of birth control pills I had every “pregnancy symptom” in the book. Crazy sensitive/sore nipples, hormonal, increased libido, heartburn, gas, couldn’t sleep, etc. Just let your body take the time to regulate.

However, if you miss your period or something, then take another test. It is certainly possible to get pregant the first month. 

Best wishes to you!

I’m so, so sorry for your loss!

But I think it’s the combo of the hormones and the personal loss that has you all wonky.

I hope it ALL gets better soon!

I’m sorry for your loss. :/. I agree with PPs about hormonal changes. I get a lot of those symptoms around ovulation and right before AF. It might just be a rush of hormones for you!

@Rachel631:  I really do not know how different the implant is versus the pills…but it took me 6+ months to get a regular cycle after going off the pill. 

My breasts started hurting more before my periods, I was VERY moody to begin with, I lost and gained weight, and my sex drive totally changed for the better! 

So I would chalk a lot of it up to hormonal changes! Your body is going through a lot right now! Give it some time and try to be patient with yourself. 

Also, I am very sorry about your loss and I hope you find the peace you need about it all. ((hugs))

I’m very very sorry!

When I went off BC I had every pregnancy symptom int he book. This was a few years ago when I was still in college so I was sooo scared! But I think it’s just how your body reacts to being taken off the hormones.

@Rachel631:  For me at least, I don’t get those symptoms EVERY month.. just sometimes. The nausea, I do not get luckily… and maybe your next cycle will get better and better!

@Rachel631:  Wow, I hope the symptoms calm down for you soon! I have never used hormonal birth control, and my cycles are way more even-keel than that – I don’t think most women have to deal with anything quite so extreme during their normal cycles (but there are definitely some who do have intense symptoms, and I don’t mean to be dismissive of them in any way.)

If you are interested in getting to know your own cycle better as your body normalizes, you might look into the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Wechsler. It has a lot of great information you will probably find useful as you and your husband try to conceive. Even if you ultimately decide not to start charting, it’s still great to know what’s going on with your body and how to read secondary signals of ovulation so that you can take advantage of the timing and increase your chances of conception.
