Symptoms After Going Off Birth Control Pills

There could be some side effects similar to that of pregnancy experienced by women who stop taking birth control pills. Many women experience similar symptoms like pregnancy after they stop taking birth control pills and they get confused or believe that they got pregnant. There are several reasons as to why women go through these symptoms.

However, it is important that women identify the difference between pregnancy and the symptoms caused due to birth control pills.

Frequent urination is a symptom that is likely in pregnancy; however it does not start until late in pregnancy. Women who stop taking birth control pills immediately start having this symptom. If some of the symptoms are too strong it is advised that women get a thyroid test done because sometimes the birth control pills do not agree with the thyroid hormone. One of the reasons why women get symptoms like nausea, giddiness, and general feeling of purging which is very similar to morning sickness in pregnancy is because the hormones are being restored to normal production. Birth control pills have to alter the hormones like estrogen and progesterone in the body in order to stop pregnancy. When a woman stops taking birth control pills the hormones come back to the original level and these hormones are vital for pregnancy. That is why women get similar symptoms to pregnancy when they stop taking birth control pills.

The most common symptoms experienced by women who stop taking birth control pills are:  

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Frequent urination
