Before I left for my hiatus from blogging, I did a post about me coming off the pill. Here’s the update! It’s been around two months since I’ve came off the pill in total. I’ve had around two periods and I’m due my third any day now!
Maybe that’s tmi? Who knows? But if you are grossed out about periods in that detail, why are you reading this?
I was told on the minimal amounts of “coming off the pill” websites and blog posts that your period will take ages to come back. And whilst that it probably an accuracy for many people who do come off the pill, it wasn’t for me. I think I was late by around two or three days, late for when my scheduled pill period would normally be, and that was about it. Coming up to my third period, obviously, I don’t know when it’s exactly going to come (a thing I miss about the pill, being regular as clockwork) but I know it’s going to be soon.
I use the app Flo to update me on when my PMS is around the corner, when my period is going to be and all that fun stuff. It also tells you when you’re likely to become pregnant throughout your cycle which obviously is no importance to me but it may help you guys trying for babies!
One thing I have noticed since coming off the pill, and the one thing I am not enjoying, is the return of acne. BOY is my skin going wild. It’s not just during my period part of the cycle like it used to be, it’s all the damn time. Maybe I took for granted the clear skin I always had when being on the pill hahhaa?
Other than that, I’ve not really experienced many other drastic symptoms. And I just want to make it clear that this is my body. Obviously everyone is going to be different. The way my body reacted to the pill and also reacted to coming off the pill may be totally different for you. That being said, it could possibly be the exact same and we may be body buddies (lol what?). With this, I’d like for any of you who have come off the pill before, or any form of contraception, to let us know down in the comments how you reacted! You may overlook something but it may completely help someone out!
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day and I’ll see you on Saturday for another blog post!
