541196 tn?1293556536 would that dark spotting after stopping the pack be the beginning of my newly timed cycle and ovulation fall into the normal time line or will it be a long time before I am regular? How often do people get pregnant right after stopping their birth control pill? PS. I don't really mind if I get pregnant. My husband and I have been talking about it. We were using a condom for the first week, but it was causing irritation to me, so we stopped.
Avatar n tn Now 2 days after I stopped taking the pills, I have a heavy period with clots. Is this normal? How long will this period last? Can I expect my next period 28 days after this one?
Avatar f tn It worked great for me as far as not getting pregnant but I had horrible mood swings, acne, and my appetite was out of control. It doesn't do everyone like that but all birth control has some type of side effects!
Avatar f tn With hormonal birth control, the period you get is actually withdrawal bleeding from stopping the hormones, and not a usual period caused by ovulating and getting ready for a baby. That's why periods when you're on birth control tend to be so regular. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I have not been on birth control for about a year and I have spotted a couple of times since but this is the first actual period I've had since stopping birth control. Also, the same day I started my period I took the morning after pill right before, not knowing my period would start the same day. Is this prolonged heavy bleeding due to the morning after pill or could it be because I didn't have a period for so long or are there any other possible reasons?
Avatar f tn I am going to the gyno cologist soon to get on birth control. Any types that are great ? I have bad cramps, and heavy bleeding but my periods are pretty regular and on time. And are their any birth controls that won't make you gain weight ?!?!?!?!!?
Avatar n tn LOL HOWEVER, my concern is mainly the emotional / mental side effects after stopping yasmin, as well as excessive weight gain after stopping. (while not pregnant) Has anyone either Experienced these side effects after stopping yasmin OR known of anyone who has or know anything about these effects. I am guessing they are caused from the drop in the hormone levels. Also, I have heard about primrose oil and flaxseed oil being good to regulate hormones or help PMS symptoms.
Avatar n tn I did the same thing I took my birth control on a sunday that I was not the sunday after my period. I had massive cramps. If you are missing pills often or stop for more than 2 days you are supposed to stop taking them for that month and then start again on the sunday after you start your period.
Avatar n tn Saturday: finished my period Sunday: began new form of birth control pill Monday: migrane, and other bad side effects Tuesday: migrane Wednesday: decided to stop the new pill-had unprotected sex with husband Thursday: felt great Friday: felt great Sat: went for a 6 mile run...started bleeding that night Sun: bleeding very heavily all day After negative side-effects from a new form of birth control I stopped taking it three days into the pack. My first few days off the pill were fine.
Avatar f tn The only thing I have seen was about the Ortho Evera Birth Control Patch. The only reason I noticed that is because it is what I use.
Avatar n tn It's been over a year since my last injection. within the first six months after stopping the shot I gained 40lbs without a change in my diet and excercise.I was told this was unusual to gain after stopping the shot and that i may never lose the weight. Is this true? or is the only way to go back on the shot because while i was on the shot i actually lost weight.but if that's the answer won't i be trapped on the shot forever?
Avatar n tn when i started taking my birth control for the first time after my baby i had a period for 3 days and then i stopped taking it and a bout a week past then i started bleeding again for a day...it wasnt heavy but it was a dark red. is that normal? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/262365'>Bleeding after stopping the pill</a>.
Avatar n tn Also--what are you doing about birth control? Some types can decrease your supply.
Avatar n tn I quit taking pill a couple of days ago, and I am having a rather heavy period now. I just had my period a week and a half ago when I was taking the pill. Can you tell me if this is normal or what this might be leading to?

Avatar m tn When I was 17, I started taking Lo Loestrin Fe birth control pills. I took them until my sophomore year of college, which I stopped in Feb. 2015 because I was on antibiotics and was not sexually active at the time, anyway. I had no side effects while taking this pill & still received a regular period, from what I can remember. This past July I decided to get back on the pill, as my migraines with my period were getting worse and I was once again sexually active.
280418 tn?1306329510 I am 27 years old and I had a similar problem, after being on Birth Control for 5 years I decided to stop. I had never had acne much as a teenager but within a few months of stoping my BCP my skin had completely broken out. The antibiotics helped but were only temporary. It had been nearly a year and no change, I was getting so frustrated and was about to go back on the pill but decided to do some searching for natural remedies.
Avatar f tn Now, I am still bleeding heavy but on the 30th we had sex...is there any chance I could be pregnant ? How soon after stopping birth control pills will I know if I ovulated?
Avatar n tn I've had break through bleeding for 3 of the 8 weeks and it isn't showing any signs of stopping. I've had period like symptons during the 8th week. I called the doctor and they keep telling me that it's just my body getting used to the pill. Has anyone else experience these type of symptoms?
Avatar n tn I read on other posts involving women with somewhat different symptoms after depo, that they took a high dose birth control pill and after about 6 months they got their periods back. Would it be worth suggesting to my doctor?
Avatar f tn So, now I feel better but I wonder if I could avoid all this by stopping the birth control pill. What other options are there for a 20 that doesn't want to have kids for at least 5-8 years?
