Supplements for coming off the pill?

Due to ongoing issues with fatigue and Sod (sphincter of oddi) I've decided to come off my contraceptive pill (Yasmin). I've been reading into supplements to help restore a natural balance, but there are so many recommended that I could end up taking everything. Could anybody recommend maybe 2-3 supplements that may help? I don't expect my cycles to be 'normal' as they never were prior to being on Yasmin, I'd just like to help myself if I can.

Angus castus is supposed to balance hormones. Also starflower oil is more potent than Evening Primrose Oil to help with PMT.

I was also coming on the thread to say agnus castus but pp beat me to it! When I came off the pill to ttc I used this and had a regular 28 day cycle within two months. Could have been coincidence but I'd been on the pill for 15 years. Might be worth a try?
