Coming off the pill

Estimable Member Registered


I have just recently made the decision to stop taking the contraceptive pill, was on the combined pill for just over a month then got switched over to the mini pill after I started getting migraines and was on that for nearly 3 months. They both seemed to make me feel moody and have next to no libido and it has really been putting a strain on my relationship so I decided to stop.

My question is does anyone have any idea how long it might take for things to go back to normal?
Like I know it can take a while for the hormones to readjust themselves. Will it be a case of when my period returns the rest should go back to normal? Or could the rest get better before that? I really hope it doesn't take too long cos this is driving me crazy!

I've been on the pill for over 10 years with no issues. Havent gone off it but got changed a few years ago to another one and felt awful like you plus had other horrible side effects. After being put back on my old one, it took about a month for my body to get back to normal. I imagine for you going off the pill would be similar as your body will have to regulate its own hormones again and it may take time to produce the correct amount. I dont think it should take more than that as your body doesnt really stop producing the hormone, it only does it in smaller levels.
