off the pill for almost 6 months and im having irregular periods, not sure why?
I was on the pill for a good 4 years, and suddenly in March i decided to take a break from it, just cause i wasnt sure if being on the pill for a long period of time was a good thing or not. Anyway ever since i stopped taking the pill my periods have been irruglar to me. I get them alot sooner then before about 24-29 days apart. There alot heavier, and they last for about a week. Also when i have sex with my boyfriend and my periods due the next week i start to bleed during sex. im not sure at all whats going wiht my body to be honest. I just recently got my period yesterday, and it was totally different then how its been first off i didnt get the cramps which i always get, and the color is off. Its a brown/dark bright red/black color. and it looks like slimy clots. I dont know maybe im just losing it but im just worried about the whole thing. i dont know if all this is due to my coming off the pill or if something is wrong with me. Nothing like this ever happened when i was on the pill. Please advise. thanks
I've had similar issues...off the pill for 6 months, and now my periods are actually longer days apart 34-42 days. And, I've had spotting and stuff too. And, some spotting right after sex. Sorry I don't have any answers, but it seems like it is not unusual!
