Going off Birth Control Pill after extended use. Symptoms / Side Effects?!

I was on the pill for 13 years and stopped taking it in Feb 2010. It has been 7 months and these are the symptoms I have been experiencing:
I havenít had a period since July (3 months late)
Periodic spotting
Bleeding after intercourse
Extreme fatigue
Frequent Urination
Urinary tract infection
Greasy Hair
Weight gain
Nausea (thatís new)
I have been to planned parenthood and they have run several tests (Stds, thyroid issues, bacteria cultures) which have all been negative. They are now going to check for more serious issues such as cervical cancer & polyps / fibroids. I am in good shape, exercise regularly and eat well. I am beginning to believe these symptoms are related to hormone imbalance from going off the pill. My symptoms appear to be getting worse as I progress and would love to hear of other peopleís similar storiesÖ
