The Adjustment Period


Is it odd that I never thought I would have to adjust to being off birth control?! I knew things would be different but for 3 months I had normal periods. Lasted my normal 5 days, all the same symptoms but then month 4 and month 5 hit 🙄 birth control is completely out of my system now. I have new symptoms like back pain as well as month 5 introducing longer periods. A full 7 days (or at least I’m at 7 days tonight). Not to mention they come earlier than what I was use too 😅

I made the decision to get off for the health of my body.. little did I know how crazy my body would be without it. Just need to keep reminding myself it’s better to be off of it despite all the great things like shorter and predictable periods.
