  • I had heavier periods until I got pregnant. I have horrible mood swings on the pill. I feel like a million bucks off of it!

  • I also had heavier periods but I felt that I was much calmer than when i was on the pill. It was like a break or something. Oh and the periods came with intense back pain. I was very sore like the postpartum period or something, just when i got my period though.

  • It took several months for my period to regulate out to a normal cycle. They were heavy and lasted 4-5 days at first and after 18 months, they are lighter and last only 2-3 days. The first few months my cycles were like 42 days 26 days, 71 they are normally 33 days.

  • mines is still in the regulating process I guess. I have been off since December and have had irregular cycles since ranging from 37 to 41 days. Ovulation, or what appears to be ovulation, is painful now and I usually get cramps the 2nd half of my cycle. Last month I had a 36 day cycle so hopefully they are beginning to regulate again....O, we been trying to conceive also during this time and it has been a beast and very confusing...BOTTOM LINE. the pill suck
