Probably your body adjusting to hormones still. There are a lot of hormone changes happening as you enter your fertile window, and your body probably just isn’t used to them.

I would agree with PP, you body is still just adjusting to coming off the horomones of BC. It can take a while for your body to regulate.

vwilson :  try your best not to stress it- I know it’s easier said than done. I had the same situation. I was on bc for 13 years, went off for 1.5 before we tried to get pregnant. I attributed all these same symptoms to the pill suppressing symptoms/real hormones for so long. It surprised me so much how my body handled my waves of emotions/pms/ovulation off the pill. I’m 34 weeks pregnant and have had a super easy, nausea free pregnancy. Don’t let these symptoms make you think you’ll suffer during pregnancy! Best of luck.

vwilson :  Thank you! I have a legitimate severe fear of throwing up-I’ve only done it a handful of times in my life and it has been something I’ve tried to cope with for YEARS. Becoming pregnant, throwing up was my #1 concern and I used to perseverate and obsess over how I felt. Once I got to like 8 weeks and hadn’t thrown up, I was able to let it go (mostly) and fear it a little less in terms of worrying about morning sickness. I get where you’re coming from. I think part of the cause of the symptoms you’re talking about is that you’ve forgotten how your body handles life OFF the pill-that was my issue. It’s not that the BC stayed in my system so long, but that I had no concept of how my periods and cycle would be as an adult, since the last time I had a real period I was 17 years old. I’m not sure how long you were on it, but this is very possible for you too. You will get accustomed to how your body functions naturally, which for me, was super interesting and also made me not want to ever take it again (except now that I REALLY don’t want to get pregnant for like 2 years from now hahahaha)
