@Mars62312:  I was super greasy hair bad acne and mad bloating when I stopped BC. It sucked. I got pregnant second cycle off so I still have all those horrible things plus all the other joys of pregnancy lol. Hopefully you’ll be back to normal soon!

I’ve started getting cramps, and I bloat like crazy. Super irritating, but worth it for me. I’m happy to not be taking hormonal birth control anymore.

I was on the Nuvaring, and aside from mood swings, I had no side effects fromgoing off!

Then I got knocked up… My acne is WAY worse now than it EVER was in middle or high school!

Urgh I am also coming off birth control in 1 month and I am scared of what it will do to my body. The main reason I got on it 3 years ago was to get rid of my breakouts. I’m praying they don’t come back!

@Mars62312:  I started my second period off the pill today and it was horrible. I picked up some super tampons on my way to work (have only used light ones on the pill) and I bled through that (the super ones) and stained my undies in ~35 minutes. Oh and the cramps are terrible. Im not TTC so I’ll be going back on the pill this sunday. 🙁

I got breakouts at first, too.  They stopped after a few months, though — so there’s hope!  My skin is still a little more oily, but there are some benefits.  Oilier skin is a bit less prone to wrinkles.  My cramps are also less intense than they were before I was on the pill.

I always just used condoms (my one attempt at the pill made me extremely depressed).  I think the bright side is that now that you’re off the pill you can experience the awesomeness that is Ovulation sex.  It is by far the best sex and will rock your world.  I could never give up ovulation voluntarily.  It’s one of the greatest human experiences.
