    Question Going off ortho lo

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if any of you can relate to my situation and give me a few pointers. I went on ortho tri cyclin lo when I was 20 and I am 22 now. I was probably 15 lbs less and had very clear skin before I started taking the pill. Now my skin is not terrible but I always have problem spots and it is usually worse before I get my period. I went on the pill for protection but more because of the fact that I had terrible periods that lasted around 7 days, horrible cramps and back aches, very bad pms (depression when I never usually am depresse), headaches before periods, and also I would go anywhere from 22-40 days between cycles. I was in college when I started so my lifestyle was very different than it is now that I am in the working world and graduated. I feel that I should give my body a break since I've been on it for over 2 years. I also will not be needing it for protection anymore so that is not a worry. I am going to finish my pack (one more day before sugar pills) and then not buy a new one. I have not consulted my doctor either. I have not really had any bad experiences on ortho lo but I would like to lose the excess weight I've gained (I just joined the gym again also) and clear up my skin (which I believe ortho lo cause) and also just get my body off of the hormones for awhile. Thank you all in advance for your help!!
