  • once your body adjust to the birth control yes. BC screws with your body bad

  • you have to give your body time to adjust to the pill. It's a body blowing change, but in about 2-3 months you will not have those experiences. I had that too and I also had cramps in the ovary area for the first month too.

  • totally normal. first time i went onto the pill i didnt have that issue but my second time going back onto it i bled for a month straight. i was so worried and called my doctor but they said it was normal. they said in some cases it goes on for 2 months! any longer then theyd see me.. but they pretty much just said.. give it time to straighten out your hormones.. didnt last much longer after that call and boy was i happy to finally be done!
