First period after pill

Hi all!

Stopped Cerelle on the 22nd October, had a withdrawal bleed on the 26th for 3 days. Since then on and off i've felt rough. Since Saturday i've been burning up on and off, felt sick, had constipation, sore boobs, weeing a lot more than normal (3 times in about 2 hours last night which is really unusual for me), tired, headaches, backaches, cramps and today i have bad right hip pain. Huge amount of symptoms, could this be the sign AF is going to show her head soon? First natural one since being on the pill since 17 (12 years ago) so not sure what to expect!

blimey, if that is a normal period for you it seriously needs attention!

sounds like flu to me, not menstruation.

This is the thing.. i really dont remember so could be a mix of a few things or i have heard horror stories about the first post pill period that it could be a bit of that.

I came of Cerelle in Aug (taking it for about 10 years) and my first period was a killer....I had all the symptoms and felt disgusting for almost 2 weeks.

Since then, everything has calmed down - I do have symptoms (sore boobs and immense irritability being my main ones) but all the other symptoms have fallen away.

The Dr said it was something to do with the fact that your body has to learn how to regulate your hormones by itself again so it goes a bit haywire because it can't remember what to do at first...

Think that must be what it is then. Hopefully AF will rear her ugly head soon and I can get it over with!

Glad it's settled down for you.

Yeah, the pill really screws with your body! All those synthetic hormones make your real ones forget to work and then they have to retrain themselves.xx

There's no chance you might be pregnant?

I only ask because in both my pregnancies, hip pain was my first symptom.

I don't think I could be no. Would be a huge feat of determined sperm if so as we didn't have penetrative sex and unless it's got through a condom when we have. I know stranger things have happened but would be a long shot!! Wouldn't even know when to test to check confused

Feel rough today, felt sick since last night and have a bit of a dicky tummy today but did get anxious about the dentist so pretty normal symptoms for me.xx
