My name is Jessica. I have taken birth control pretty much all my life. I have been on it and off it and never had a issue until now. After my second child I decided to get a tubal ligation and therefore I no longer needed to take the pill. Well after about a year I started having weird symptoms. Black hair growing on my chin. hair loss, no energy. Etc. I was tested and it came back that my ovary hormone was to high. So I was placed back on the pill to regulate my hormones. After a year of being on orthotyicyclen I was having issues with my heart beating out of rhythm and went to the hospital a few times because of my heart racing. I was also having issues with my blood sugar. I got off the pills to try and help that. Now I have been off the pills for about 3 months and feel like I’m losing my mind!!!! I have the worst periods. No really cramping bad but I spot and bleed separately. I have days were I cry uncontrollably. No sex drive, then major sex drive. “My poor husband” I feel so bad because I can’t explain to help why I am acting so crazy. Gained almost 20 + pounds. The list go on and on. I feel miserable. I started my period about a week ago. I spotted for about 5 mins. Then didn’t bleed for 4 days. Now the flood gates have opened. I feel week and fuzzy. Like I can’t think straight. I took Midol but no relief. I’m extremely tired today and thought about going home from work because I feel just that bad. My acne is AWEFUL! I'm having cyst like acne bumps that really hurt and last for days. I really want my body to regulate and stay off the pills. Any suggestions???? Any tips to help me while I go through this?
