I'm 23 years old and I've been taking birth control since I was 17. My husband and I were without jobs and couldn't afford birth control for a period of time so we've been using the pull out method to prevent pregnancy. I stopped taking the birth control in the beginning of June. I haven't had a period since I've stopped taking it and it is now almost September. I thought this was normal after stopping. During the last week or so I've been getting waves of slight nausea and over the last week my nipples have been really tender and kind of sore... but I just started having period-like cramps a couple days ago. I'm so confused and I just want to know if I should be worried.View Thread
