Trying to Get Pregnant

AF

Since I stopped taking bc it seems like AF is a lot heavier...which sucks so bad. Has anyone else experienced this? The cramping is a lot worse, which I expected but the heaviness I did not expect. Does it gradually get better? I freakin hope so...

  • I have noticed that AF is much heavier....but also about 1 day shorter. Wierd.

  • She's definitely heavier for me off BCP, but she was heavier before BCP too and I'd heard its normal for BCP to shorten/lighten AF so I expected it.

  • That happened to me too.  It did get better, so there's hope :-)  I had been on BC so long I forgot what it was really like to have bad cramps.  On the positive side, my libido went up!
  • My first 1 or 2 periods were bad, but now they're actually much better than when I was on BC (one really heavy day, which is new, followed by just one more day of moderate/light bleeding and done). My libido has also went way up. DH might not ever let me go back on BC again.

     Yeah mine is shorter but so much heavier and cramps last longer. Before bc a few tylenol took the pain away but now I am poppin' pamprin like it is going out of style...but i am glad there is hope for the future.

    me, too.  I really think BC tricks our bodies and we truly forget what cycles are like.  They are not always 28 days or always light or pain-free--which is usually the case  *Edit* (on BC, that is).

    Post-BC, mine are still pretty light, but I can tell I have more CM and sex-drive--DH isn't complaining!

  • I've been off for 2 months now and at first I had AF on day 25 spotting and no longer than a day.  Headaches/migraines the whole week though.  I should've had my AF 7/30 but nothing.  Took pg test 8/1 and nothing.  Started keeping track of my temperature and it keeps going up so my guess is that I skipped a cycle?  acne is worse, sex drive is up though.
