Side Effects of Stopping Yasmin/Ocella

How long with the side effects of stopping Yasmine/Ocella last?  I am now 31 years old and I stopped taking Yasmin 3 months ago The first month my period was 38 days late and I thought I was pregnant. I was extremely tired, nausaous, moody and bloated. Since I have gained weight (especially in my abdomen and thighs. Not to mention my breasts and butt are swelling more and more everyday), I having a lot of water retention in my feet and hands as well as this red rash like swelling in my big toe after I am standing for a bit. I am also having eposodic blotchiness in my arms, hards, legs and feet coupled with feeling extremely cold at times. At other times I am having hot flashes.

Can anyone tell me how long I can expect to have these symptoms? Is there anyway to counteract these symptoms.

I am trying to be patient, but this is extremely frustrating and is making me more depressed. I am a healthy person and all I want is for my body tp go back to normal. I welcome any suggestions or feedback.

Thank you.
