Thinking about going off the pill soon...anything I should know?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone-

I'm thinking about going off the pill soon and I was just wondering if there is anything I should know?? I've been on it for about 8 years... We are planning on just seeing what happens for the first few months and if nothing I guess really start trying. Who know though...that's what were saying now?

Too weird...I was going to ask the same thing (in about 2 months). I'm interested in hearing what everyone has to say. I've been on the pill for about 10 years, so I'm not sure what type of "withdrawal" or side effects I'll have (if any!).

when i quit taking the pill, i was actually a lot less bitchy in general. i lost a bunch of weight too!

 

the first couple periods were rough because my body was adjusting to its natural cycle, but then after that it was mostly like clockwork unless i got stressed. i got a copper IUD last july, which is non-hormonal, and my body works just the same now as it did when i was on no BC, like clockwork unless im super stressed and then my period is late.

I think from what I have seen, is that most women it takes a few cycles before their regular again, however with that said my DR told me that your more likely to get pregnant when you first stop taking the pill.

 

Also for you girls that are going to start TTC in the next couple of months, be sure to start taking Folic acid, for at least 2-3 months before you TTC.

I had no side effects when I stopped taking it. I only quit because I was on the pill since I was like 11 to help with my really bad periods, and I read in Cosmo that this may have effected my fertility. I freaked out and stopped taking it like a year ago.

 

Unfortunately, I didn't lose weight (sigh- if only!) and I now have bad cramps and periods longer than 3 days again.

I just went off the pill about a month ago (not for conception purposes though, trying to decrease the number of migraines I get), and I haven't really experienced any side effects. My first pd. was normal (actually is lighter off pill). I actually have less PMS effects off the pill...and so far less severe headaches.

I think the biggest side effect I have heard of is the lack of regularity in periods which can kind of suck but pantyliners are a great thing for this. Wish you a ton of luck and health!

I had no side effects or anything either - I was on the pill for like 13+ years before going off this past June. I started having a regluar cycle right away, and felt the same. My periods were heavier (I didn't really have much of anything on the pill), but fairly light to moderate.

 

I also got pregnant the first time we tried in Oct (we were preventing it before that). Every woman is so different though, but that's my experience!

I plan on stopping in September and I was looking up different side effects. I read that most people that are on it for a while takes longer to conceive. This could be wrong... if I find anything else I will post the site.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
