Quitting the pill
I started taking the pill about 11 years ago. I had pretty bad cramps and that stopped with the pill. Around maybe 2005, my doctor had me taking my pills consistently for 3 months (skipping the reminder pills) and in 2007, I stopped getting my period altogether.
Last fall, I had some weird gynecological issues that are still unexplained and I started getting my period again. However, it is super wonky. I never know when it's coming or how long it will last.
Since it's not regulating my period and I am in no danger of becoming pregnant, I am thinking about just stopping the pill when this pack is finished. I am going for my annual exam in October and I will talk to my doctor then. I am just worried about side effects from quitting the pill. Does anyone have experience with this?
Sorry for the loooong story but any advice is greatly appreciated.
