I let my prescription run out by accident and since FH was out out town I wasn’t concerned with getting back on super fast. It turned out to be the best thing that could have happened. I’d had a rash for the last 1 1/2 that I was treating with meds but that never officially went away. When I stopped the BC my rash went away and I also stopped getting daily headaches. I never attributed the two to each other but it turned out that they were related. My periods were a little heavier at first but nothing crazy bad. I’ve noticed a HUGE difference and I will never go back on BC for those reasons.

Being on bc helped with my back aches during my period. Practically eliminated them altogether. Which was awesome. But I got off because it DESTROYED my sex drive and was in turn hurting my relationship. I just cold turkey stopped. We are back to a combination of condoms/withdrawal/crossing our fingers. 🙂 It wasn’t so bad in the beginning but the longer I was on it the less I was physically capable of having sex. I’ve been off for 2 or 3 months now and I feel like I’m back to normal. After having my sex drive go from 60 to 0 in less than a second, it will take a really fantastic arguement for me to go back on. Not everyone seems to have issues with it, and I was hoping to be one of those people. guess I’m just not lucky 🙂

But if you’re concerned with just stopping, I’d talk to your doctor. Everyone reacts differently to medication.

For the most part, going off it was fine for me. I did break out a little more than usual, but that is mostly it. I got my period back within a couple weeks, no delay on that. Good luck!

I had no problems going off of it.  I always felt terrible when on it and felt much better once I stopped it.
