Hello, I've been on the combined pill for two months now. Today is the end of my second box, I am currently on my 7-day break. Since I started taking the pill, the first few weeks I dealt with mild nausea and I felt more 'heavy' physically. I'm really thin so I noticed right away a change in my body. I noticed my breasts getting bigger, with the Montgomery glands a bit more visible than before. I've experienced a lot of hunger and fatigue.
During these last couple of weeks, I have noticed that my veins have become more visible. My skin is not too white, but I could see them on my breasts, my thighs and part of my belly. I've been experiencing faint tinglings on my legs and feet. Also, I do not know if this is related, but I've been having really vivid dreams these past two weeks. I NEVER dream, and these are extremely vivid and I can remember them when I wake up.
During the first pack, my period came on the 7-day break but I got these awful cramps, and I think that my body didn't break down my uterine lining fast enough because I shed tissue, which makes me think this is why my cramps were just horrible. I took the pill because I always had extremely irregular periods. I cramped so bad they made me stay in bed, and overall my flow usually lasted about 8 days, as well. Since my period came on the 5th day of my first 7-day break from the pill, I only bled heavily for two days, and on the fourth it stopped.
I'm, to be honest, really fascinated by the changes in my body but I can't help to ask if all these symptoms will fade once my body gets used to the pills. Including my breast augmentation. Thank you for your time, any tips and feedback is appreciated!
