Last cycle was my firtst off of hormonal BC in a very long time. Week 3 of that cycle was jam packed with crazy, vivid dreams. I woke up crying some days. Other days I woke up mad at Mr. LK, my Mother, and various other people. It was ridiculous. I blamed it on the hormones. I’m now in week 1 of my second cycle, and I’m hoping there’s no repeat of last time. So I don’t know if it is “normal,” but you are not alone.

My first cycle off BC was nuts. I did have very vivid terrible dreams. I am on my 2nd cycle (almost 3rd) and they have gotten better. I still dream, and sometimes they are weird, but nothing like when I first went off the pill.

I went off BC 10 months ago after being on it for more than 10 years….I don’ remember dreams but I started to have some strange things going on with my uh…drive??…I would literally be sitting in class and “it” was all I could think about….I started to worry I was developing crushes on random people too! lol……but it passed within about 3 months..I feel more like myself now. I”m pretty sure it was just a shift in hormones and that my body found it’s  balance again.

Yep. I went off it recently as well and had a terrible dream that really freaked me out.
