Going off the pill...what to expect?

Next month I am going off of the pill and was wondering what to expect? I've been on the pill for the past 10 years. DH and I are wanting to have a baby, but not really trying to have one just yet. I just thought I would go off the pill and if it happened right away great and if not, then later we will start trying. I have an appt with my doctor next week about this, but wondered what I should know before hand. Did you notice if you gained or lost weight after going off? Acne - better or worse? Moodiness? Increased libido? Anything?

Re: Going off the pill...what to expect?

I stopped yasmin last month and have not had any side effects so far....though i am curious about missing a period....I should be starting my period any minute now. when i stopped bc about 4 years ago, i got pregnant within 2 months, but unfortunately miscarried. after the miscarriage, i pretty much had a period for about 6 month straigt (only stopping for a a couple of days at a time).. from what i have read on other blogs, that sounds like i was possibly having a side effect of coming off bc. My hubby and i were trying to get pregnant and had to go on clomid to get pregnant because i was not ovualting (luckily we got pregnant on the firs try

Re: Going off the pill...what to expect?

The effects differ for everyone. There's really no way to know for sure how your body will handle the withdrawal. I know there are a lot of posts on here about the subject, so you might want to take a look around or do a search for posts about going off the pill. You'll be able to see what everyone else has written about their experiences. Just keep in mind as you read that just because someone had one effect doesn't mean you'll have the same.
