Effects Of Stopping Birth Control

I started using birth control at the end my Atlanta trip and everything was going great until it wasn’t. I started using birth control to stop my period cycles. I had heavy periods before and it was so stressful. My cycle lasts between 5-6 days which is too long so I had to do something. After taking birth control, I immediately felt better because my cycle was coming up and it never came. I am a newbie to birth control but I am starting to hate it and I will explain why.

Their are positives for birth control such as no periods, and pregnancy prevention but the are way more negatives. I am talking about weight gain, nausea, light periods or spotting, breast tenderness and more. I was spotting lightly so I wore a pad until it stopped. It went away one day and started again the next day so I just kept a pad on obviously. It lasted a couple of days so I did what anyone else would do and that was to look it up on the internet (lol). They said it’s normal for a couple of days but then I was bleeding more. I thought it was because I started taking the pills before my period started.

Some people said to stop taking the pills for a week or until the blood stops, so that is what I did. So much happened in one week of getting off the pill. I was full on bleeding as if I was on my period. I was on so heavy with many blood clots. I can’t believe what happened and I wished I had never taken them. What happened to me was called “withdrawl bleeding” and it usually last between 2-4 weeks after stopping birth control. I was complaining but mine only lasted a week in a half (lol). I was complaining so much that I purchased two pack of pads just in case. That was because I had a horrible accident one night and it was just too much. Any woman knows what I am talking about but this accident was different. Lets just say, I ran to the bathroom, hopped in the shower and had to clean a lot (gross I know!).

My bleeding finally stopped yesterday so I feel a lot better. I heard that my period won’t be normal up until 3 months but I plan on getting back on birth control once it comes in the mail. I ordered my birth control from a licensed professional OBGYN. At least I know now because before I thought it was just my body. This happens to probably everyone but I hated it because I thought birth control was suppose to stop periods all together. At least I know now.


Hi! Welcome to my blog. I am a college student and I am curious about everything. When I get curious, I need to talk about it. Life is amazing and weird at the same time. This is why we must stay positive so that we can enjoy life before it ends.

Wanna say something...
