I went off the same way.  I didn’t really have any negative experiences afterwards and was very happy to not have monthly headaches anymore.  Good luck!

When I stopped, I had my period for 20 straight days… But I didn’t have much cramping.

I didn’t really have any problems. The only effects were positive– lost a few pounds and higher sex drive.

I’ve had a couple of good things, like increased sex drive, and a couple of pounds off.

I have also had a lot of cramping right before my period, heat rash, and my period is really unpredictable about when it shows up.

Yeah I think that’s the best way to go off…I didn’t have any side effects of going off…my period was reall regular before so I didn’t really see a major difference…only positives…my period was lighter/shorter 🙂

I have a longer cycle and worse cramps, but otherwise going off the pill was pretty uneventful for me.

I really had almost no effects, I think my next period was a little off, and probabyl dropped a pound or two, but nothing terrible. Getting exercise in the days before my period really helps me with cramps!

First I would say call your Gyn for a better idea of what is good. Second I am a horrible pill taker and went on and off the pill because several of them didnt agree with my body. When you go off you may feel a little weird hormonally and if its near your period the better because your not in the middle of the cycle of medicine.

Not many for me – My periods were a litle longer (from like 1-2 days to 3-4).  I had one super short cycle in the first few months (2 weeks!) and that cycle caused horrible breakouts, but generally it wasn’t a big deal.  But i think every one is so different

That’s how I stopped taking mine, and my only “side effect” was getting pregnant!
