The Real Amy

Hi Rebecca, glad you’re on a better track now! Just FYI, some people take a long time to recover hormonally after coming off hormonal BC. Your acne may get worse for awhile, and the weight may be slow to come off. You may have mood swings for a few months (mine lasted about 3 months, if I recall). I’ve been off the pill for 3 years now and I still think I have a few residual effects, but mostly gone, thank goodness (I was on for 15 years, so I’m sure that didn’t help). Be sure to take care of yourself and keep stress low, and eat well, etc., and give yourself plenty of time to return to your old self.
