Period after stopping the pill
Hi there,

I''''ve been on Yasmin for 3 months and stopped. I had a normal period after drinking the last pill. I was supposed to come on 5 days ago. Did a preggies test which was negative. My boobs are also not painful this month.

I normally had very regular cycle with sore boobs.

Will everything return to normal? Could it be that my hormones are still adjusting to the fact that I stopped the pill?

Thank you kindly.

People have different responses when stopping the oral contraceptive. You should give it time to see if your menstrual cycle returns to normal.
