Stopping BCP After 2 Weeks

I'd been on Ortho Tricyclin for about 2 years by January 2017 and had no previous side effects. I missed a month and began to take them February- and that's when I experienced some extreme breast swelling and tenderness. I continued to take it for 2 months and decided to come off (with a physician's approval) to see if the swelling would come down. It got worse. I had horrible PMS for the following 3 months that prompted me to start taking BCP about 2 weeks ago (again, with a physician's approval). The first week was good. I've noticed less bloating and a small reduction in breast swelling. But as the 2nd week came I noticed I was getting hungrier as the days passed despite little activity. I have been blood tested and all my hormones were normal in June, I had a low/normal THC (thyroid) and only an iron deficiency- which I've started to supplement. I eat very healthy- all fruits, veggies and healthy proteins, carbs and fats. So I've decided I just need to stop taking BCP to let my body settle for the next few months and allow it to sort through coming off of BCP. I'm just worried I'll mess up my body; especially since I took almost 2 weeks worth of BCP. Am I starting at the beginning of detoxing my body? Or would this just be a blip in the 4 months since actually quitting BCP in the early winter of 2017. I don't want to get hungrier or gain weight that's unnecessary by coming off the pill- Im just scared that I've messed things up by taking it for the last 2 weeks. I'm 20 years old.

Re: Stopping BCP After 2 Weeks

You haven't messed anything up. You'll probably have your period early if you stop before the inactive pills though
