What happens after you stop taking the Pill

I'm curious. If you started to take the Pill because of painful cramping/heavy bleeding for some time and then stopped taking it... what happens after? Did you continue to have the same painful cramps? Did the pain lessen? Was your period more "normal"?

I guess it varies from person to person, but I would appreciate your input.

You will go back to how your periods were before you were on the pill.  Speaking from experience, and from what I understand, most other girls have this issue.  I went off it for a month to see because I thought I wasn't going to need it for other reasons for a while, and I decided that I was going right back on them.  It was just as debilitating as it was before, just as long, just as heavy, just as full of clots.
