So I was in the combined pill for 4 years n came off it a month ago and went straight on to the mini pill for 4 days but came off due to side affects since then I've had cramping for the last month and also no period at all?

I use to have a period on dot same time every month when on the combined pill.

My belly is bloated I feel so anxious that I'm hardly eating and feel tired all while.

I have a 5.6cm cyst on right ovary also but only found out last week.

Need little bit advice to where my period is ???

    Hi

    Ive just come off the implant after 6 months due to intermittant bleeding, bloating, weight gain and tiredness. Im still waiting for my period to arrive! Ive got friends that are on the mini pill and dont bleed at all. I think its just how they work. It may take some time to get back to normal. Hope that helps

      I think your body gets used to getting the hormones so it's a shock when they stop and I think it can also stop your body producing its own hormones so it has to re-start making them. On average I think it's about 3 months , everyone's different. I still feel very hormonal and sickly at times , very bloated , cramps / spotting and I get anxiety , do you get any anxiety ?

      Yea bad anxiety but had that before I stopped taking them. I'd b ok if it wasn't for my stomach cramps bloating n sicky feeling now n again. I even thought maybe it was trapped wind. Maybe if it's change in hormones maybe that's why I got a cyst on ovary?
