Stopped using contraceptive
Hi Doc

I was on contraceptive for a period of 3 years when I stopped using it about two weeks ago on the day that my period was supposed to arrive, however, my period was very light, almost non existing. Ever since I' ve been really exhausted and very very moody. Also, I was supposed to start ovulating this week, but nothing. Please could you advise?

It can take a month or two before you ovulate after stopping the Pill. Some side effects are also usual after stopping the Pill.
