Post Birth Control Syndrome

Coming Off "The Pill"


In some women, especially those who have been on oral contraceptives, or the birth control pill, for a long time, getting your hormones back in working order may take several months. This phenomenon is called “post-pill amenorrhea” and can be a hindrance to getting pregnant, should that be desired. Coming off the birth control pill can also induce nutrient deficiencies, irregular periods, and hormonal acne.
