    Default Off the Pill

    Hello,

    I have finally come off the pill for the first time in I'd say 15 years, because I am planning on having a baby.

    I've been off for about 3 weeks now & I wanted to know if the problems I am having are normal?

    I have been getting extreme bloating in my stomach & when I press on it, the pain is quite sore. I have just started to get sensitive nipples as well. Plus I am experiencing a clear discharge which I haven't had whilst on the pill.

    If you could be of helped it would be appreciated.

    Hi there Twwety,

    Sharp hormonal changes from coming off the pill can cause ‘strange’ symptoms. The pill is notorious for causing nutritional deficiencies and can even cause gut dysbiosis (gut flora imbalances), which can lead to bloating and pains etc. The other two symptoms i.e. sensitive nipples and clear vaginal discharge can also be related to the sharp hormonal changes.

    In my practice I often treat women in your situation with the help of herbal medicines and nutritional supplementation with excellent results. You may like to find a competent and qualified practitioner to help balance your hormonal levels and nutrient status at this time given your aspirations to become pregnant and create the healthiest possible baby.

    I hope this helps.

    With fertile blessings,
