Coming off of BC

I've been off of my bc (orthotricyclin lo) for a month now (well, a month and a half if you count from the placebo week and my last AF). I would have gotten my AF this week, but I know it takes a while for your system to go back to normal....

How long did it take (if you've gone through the same thing) for your cycle to go back to normal? What were some side effects you've had?

(I was on it for 2 1/2 years, if that matters)

I'm just getting kind of discouraged reading people saying it permanently messed up their ovulation and all that, and was hoping to hear better sounding stuff from you ladies here....

  • Oh my no :) I was coming off of the generic version, to wait two months and start depo, well the two months never came because after 1 month, i had 1 in the oven!
