Got off BCP in March:

Immediately gained 10 lbs + redistribution of fat, started losing my hair, extremely sore nipples during ovulation, fatigue (which is gone now), acne + oily skin.

I think there were other lovely things in the first month or two, but as of right now, its really just the weight and hair loss that’s bugging me. The acne thing kinda sucks, too. Bleh.

I lost a few lbs (then gained it back of course Yell) felt sick to my stomach a few times, stronger period cramps, face breaks out like I am 13 again about every 3 months before my period (doesn’t break out everymonth I get my period thank god). I’ve been lucky right after I went off bcp I got my period right away and have been regular so at least I haven’t had any embarassing moments where I get it in public…yet Frown

@Abbyful- Are you and Darling Husband ttc?

I got off BC for a few months about a year ago… it sucked.  My face broke out, worse than it’s ever been.  I didn’t have too many zits/pimples during middle school , high school, or college… but after getting off BC, I felt like I was a teenager!  It took a few months after getting back on it again for my skin to clear up.  I got back on it when I started dating Fiance.   So I’m not looking forward to when we decide to start trying for a baby b/c I know it will happen again 🙁 boo
