Actually, this is about when you stop the pill. I know that no one is a doctor, I'm not asking for medical advice. I'd like to know if any of you (ex) birth control pill takers have experienced anything similar.
I stopped taking it the beginning of this month after finishing my pack. Had a normal 7 day long period on time. Everything was normal until last saturday. All of a sudden, I had literally no energy, brain fog and so tired I wanted to pass out. On monday, the smell of coffee made me want to throw up. Since then, I've been nauseous with pretty much no appetite. The thought of eating certain foods grosses me out, as do smells.
Yesterday the mood swings started and I just cried at work for literally no reason. I got at least 7 hours of sleep last night and It's still hard to keep my eyes open. I spotted maybe one spot yesterday and today but my period isn't due for over a week.
The point in this post is, have any of you experienced this after going off of hormonal birth control? I'm sure it's just my body trying to adjust but I literally feel like someone ran me over with a truck.
PS: I eat enough, am a healthy weight, don't have any health conditions other than migraines and anxiety (which I take medication for, not downers), drink at least 12 glasses of water a day, exercise often, and get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. I'm pretty sure this is hormonal since I've never felt like this in my life. Thanks for any feedback
