Stopped Birth Control - Exhausted and please need advice

Hi all,

I have noticed while searching through the birth control board that many people have complained about being really exhausted after stopping the BC pill. I have also noticed that since stopping the BC pill a week ago that I am exhausted all the time even though I get plenty of sleep. At first I thought I was going crazy but since seeing other people experiences i think it must be coming off the pill which is making me so tired. The tiredness seems to be getting worse day by day rather than better. I was wondering for all the people who have posted in the past or have experienced this problem before, being tired after coming off the pill, if you could tell me if the tiredness does go away, and how long it takes to feel like your back to normal.

You should try to start taking a strong multivitamin supplement to help aid your coming off the pill. Since the pill depletes pretty much every necessary vitamin from your body, it's really important to load up as much as possible. Also, I've read that a supplement called Vitex (available at health food stores) helps with the transition going off the pill. B Complex might help with your exhaustion problem.
