I had the missing period thing, BUT I’m not positive it’s related because that is how I found out I have PCOS (which causes less frequent periods). BC is the only thing that will really regulate besides ovulation drugs when we’re ttc.

I also had some serious mood swings and was WAY more emotional, which was odd because some people say it makes you emotional/moody to be ON bc.

I think it totally varies person to person. :/ Awkward. haha

 I was on the pill for 10 years and I stopped and had no symptoms lol. Period was on time and no acne or anything else.

This is my second cycle off. For my first cycle my period came a day later than usual. (It’s not time for my next period yet) 

I have noticed that my breasts are always sore and I’m tired (but I have been busier than usual).

I haven’t really had mood swings–just really crabby PMS.  I stopped taking BCP in February and this month was the first totally normal cycle, although the other ones weren’t too wacky.

The severe mood swings, nausea?  Any chance you are preggers?

I stopped taking BC for about 9 months and didn’t experience any symptoms people have mentioned like mood swings or acne, but I never had a regular period during that time (for example, no consistent timing and very long periods). Before I started BC I was very regular so it was pretty annoying, and I eventually went back on because of that.

I just went off BC a little over a month ago.  I got my period almost to the day it was supposed to come.  But I had CRAZY sore nipples and bad acne oh and mood swings too.  I freaked thinking I was pregnant but I guess I was ovulating.  Haha I didn’t know because I had been on BC for so long I couldn’t remember!

I came off BC mid February and so far my cycles are pretty regular although my period is lighter than it was prior to me being on the Pill and I don’t seem to be getting the wicked cramps I got in my teens (I’m 28 and was on BC from age 21).

So far my only “side effects” of coming off the Pill has been some pretty wicked acne and around ovulation I want to eat everything in sight….
