It is possible that is due to PMS symptoms. Experiencing such thing before your period is normal but if you constantly have this problem it is best to see a GYN.

Hi payge,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Not sure what your question was. But if you were taking birth control pills, that might be the cause for your symptoms. Here is a list of side effect of birth control pills. 

  • Nausea
  • Weight gain
  • Sore or swollen breasts
  • Small amount of blood, or spotting, between periods
  • Lighter periods
  • Mood changes

    Once the Pills are stopped, a women can ovulate two weeks after.  Some of the things you might want to Keep track of: when you stopped the pill, have you had a period yet and if you were sexually active the weeks after stopping the pill.

    Here's a link that might help.
