Have you seen a doctor about your periods?  What you are describing doesn’t sound like a normal, helathy period to me, (but I’m no expert).  My pre-BC periods were never bad at all, (no cramps a couple advil couldn’t take care of), so I am not really worried about going off the BC in a year or so when we start TTC.

I don’t think my cramps were ever as bad as yours (I did throw up once from them though), but I was a little nervous getting off of BC as well (not TTC, just got tired of it). So far, I have had 3 periods since being off BC (been off since Oct), and they haven’t been as bad as they used to. Actually, for my last period, I took an ibuprofen right away when I got it and noticed cramps starting and that prevented them from getting bad at all. But definitely talk to your doctor and they might be able to help you with things. I know my sister had a perscription for meds that were supposed to help specifically with cramps, but I have no idea what it was.

I also have terrible periods when off BC (cramps so bad I throw up, etc) .. my best rec’s are to take some painkiller the MOMENT you realize you have it, and to buy a fantastic heating pad (either microwaveable with rice or something inside, or the plug in the wall kind).  Try not to stress out about it, cause it’ll make it worse!  Good luck with ttc 🙂

I’m so nervous to go off the Pill in eight years or so when we TTC! I have really similar periods to yours off the Pill. I, too, have talked to my doctor about it, and she said that Motrin is best – which doesn’t help me at all – but I went on the Pill soon after so it became a moot point.

I have only had one period so far since going off BC in January.  It was not nearly as bad as mine used to be!  I was very nervous about it.  Hopefully they continue to not be so bad.  I told Darling Husband to “hurry and knock me up!”  🙂
