  • When you go on or off birth control it takes awhile for your body to adjust to the change in hormones. It's likely completely normal; but if there is a chance you could be pregnant you should test to be sure.

  • It can take several months for your body to adjust to the hormonal changes. But wait a week or so and then test for pregnancy as it is possible to get pregnant.

  • take a test just to make sure. but wheni got off of seasonique, i got all of the early pregnancy symptoms i had with my son. extreme morning body heat, food cravings and aversions, headaches, constant peeing, all that. the only thing missing was that gut instinct

  • Yes, you can. That is true of any type of birth control. I am on Yaz and I miss a couple periods a year. Freaks me out everytime, but I am fine.
