    Default Coming off the pill - side effects.

    Hi all,
    We will be trying for #2 in a few months so I came off the pill last month. In the last week I have noticed some things but put them down to side effects of coming off the pill. However tonight I noticed that I am lactating.
    Does anyone know if that could be another side effect of coming off the pill?
    Cheers

    Hmmm not to my knowledge! Are you on any other meds? High prolactin levels can be a side effect of some medication but never heard of it as a side effect of coming off the pill. Until the level comes down you may find your periods don't return (happened to me). See your Gp for a blood test perhaps?

    Not on any other meds. Last pill taken 13/02. AF 17/02. Maybe baby said I was O around 23/02 (quick I know but I just assume that this was due to only just recently coming off the pill).

    Do I wait for days/weeks or go see my GP ASAP?

    Are you still lactating? If it was me I would get it checked by Gp now as can be a symptom of other problems I believe too. So better to be sure.

    Hi Bond Girl,
    Yeah I was concerned about that as well. I went and saw my Dr on Friday and told him all my symptoms. He checked me out and he has put it down to crazy hormones. I am doing Maybe Baby at the moment to check my cycle and I haven't stopped ferning. Well I did for a couple of days. Dr thinks I am one of the lucky few who are extremely fertile.
