3 months off the Pill - a Reflection


Well it's been approximately 3 months since I stopped taking the pill, you can read that post here ---->I stopped the Pill!
There are countless websites out there that talks about fears and "success" stories when it comes stopping the BCP that the only common denominator I can come up with is that all women are different!

What have I noticed for myself?
  • an insatiable appetitie
  • probably a 5lb weight gain secondary to that insatiable appetite!! ugh!
  • skin is less dry on my face
  • skin tone is more even
  • slight difficulty handling the stressors of work (although I have to admit it's been CRAZY at work)
  • some nausea a week before period time with random wretching!
  • feeling Bikram's detox symptoms a lot more, and needing to rest during the sessions
  • water doesn't make me full
  • I get obsessed with buying $$ stuff, but don't secondary to online researching for multiple multiple hours (maybe days! haha)
  • the smell of VIM cleanser can be too much, I used to love the smell!
  • moments when my head feels cloudy and maxed out!
  • making really good food choices but not feeling full
  • hair gets oily if I use certain types of shampoos like Herbal Essence
  • scalp gets itchy and flaky if I use crappy shampoos
  • sleeping well as always, but with super vivid dreams
  • food tastes different, maybe more flavorful
  • skin is clearer and less acne prone
  • some minor cramping week prior to period time

That's all I can remember for now, but i'll definitely update when I think of it!
