I have another pretty uneventful story. I also went off it in the hope of getting libido back.

Libido is a tiny bit better, cycle is regular, maybe even a tad lighter, I get a few spots around my period but that was pretty much always the case, I have put on weight but that was happening before the change.

I'd just try it but be diligent with whatever birth control you use.

Did anyone coming off the pill have poop related issues? After a really nasty sickness virus at Christmas I decided to use the opportunity to give up the pill even before I run out. It's only a few weeks so far, and I did have a couple of tearful days, but that seems to be over. Now though, I find myself to be constipated and that's never been a problem for me. I'm not eating or doing anything else differently so it's the only thing I can think of but I don't know if it's even likely that the pill could affect that. Anyone know?

Possible TMI: constipation, diarhea, and other poo problems have always accompanied my periods, but that went away while I was on hormonal BC. It's back now....

Argh, now you're truly terrifying me.

Don't be too scared, I'm sure it's different for everyone. I haven't ever had any issues and I've been off it for years. My period is really regular and has been since going off it. I use the Fertility Awareness Method to track it and I know the day before/the morning of the day it starts that it's going to start, so it's not unpredictable for me (I really did like knowing exactly when it would start when I was on the pill).

I saw the comment about hair loss and now I wonder if stopping the pill had anything to do with my hair thinning. Also, I feel better off the pill, but I stopped about 8-9 years ago, so it's hard to remember what I felt at the time. I had been on it for about 5-6 years.
