Last month, before I decided to get BCP, I missed a period and had a pregnancy scare. I had a period the month before, and it was generally okay, with cramps I could deal with, hot fashes every now and then, and some headaches and exhaustion. The usual, for me.
This month, the symptoms seem to be about 5x worse than without BCP. I couldn't sleep last night because I had a hot flash every 5 minutes, had a major migraine that Tylenol couldn't do anything with, and my cramps made me very nauseous. Also, my anxiety was way high, and I was slightly paranoid.
I'm thinking I need to check out other BCP, but I'm not sure. Maybe my body is getting used to this BCP?
I was on BCP on and off since I was 14. I haven't taken any for almost exactly a year, though.
What do you recommend? Has any one else been through this?
