I am 24 and have been on the pill since I was 15 for contraceptive purposes. The whole 9 years of being on the pill I never had any side affects from it, despite switching brands 3 or 4 times over the years. My skin cleared up, my periods were alot lighter and I had very mild cramps during my period. Well I stopped taking them a week ago yesterday once my period was over and I finished that pack, although technically its been two weeks since the last week of the pack is placebo pills.
Anyways I just wanted to know what to expect now that I am off them. Since I have been on them since I was 15 I don't know how my body is naturally really, especially since at 15 your still developing. So far I have had no side affects,if anything my mood has improved slightly, not that the pill made me a grump or anything, but I just feel a little happier then before. I tried searching for info online as to the possible side affects, but all I could really come up with was "every woman is different"
