The after effects of stopping birth control were horrible.
If any of you ladies have stop birth control before you know exactly what I am talking about. My periods were ten times worse than before the shots. Naturally my periods are light, the first day I cramp but not as bad as most and it only last a total of 4 to 5 days. After getting off birth control my periods were longer, stronger and more painful. I couldn’t even go over an hour using a super tampon without bleeding through my panties. TMI, I know but I needed you to visualize my pain. Because of that experience it made me appreciate my periods more. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t look forward to them either, but I can’t say I dread them. Now periods are a time for myself to relax and pamper myself, at least that’s how I see it. During my cycle I love watching movies, doing masks, and laying in bed. I also love to do things as naturally and organic as possible, even though I will admit I grab a hold of some pain medicine any chance I get.
