When I came off the pill, at the age of 24, having been on it for five years, I had a similar reaction. It settled down eventually. The painful periods restarted later, and I am now sure are fairly linked to weak muscle tone and lack of excercise - so a different cause, because you don't have either of those. It hurts like hell. I recall it being a grit my teeth and get through it, eventually. Although I did end up making all of my housemates and my boyfriend at the time run around after me like mad mayflies.

I never went back on the pill because of this one reaction from coming off it.

All I want to do is reassure that, however horrible it feels right now:

a. It will get better
b. It's perfectly normal. If I can be presented as an example of perfectly normal.
