Are there any other side effects of stopping the pill?
As with any other hormonal contraceptive, stopping the pill will influence your hormonal balance. Any side effects you may have noticed while you were taking the pill should subside quickly.
At the same time, any benefits of the pill, such as improved skin or lighter periods, may disappear within the following weeks as well. It is difficult to predict whether you will notice any side effects of stopping the pill or not, as every woman reacts differently.
According to a small study, quitting the pill could also have an unexpected effect on your relationship. A report in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science Journal concluded that women who consider their partners very attractive experience improved marital satisfaction after stopping the pill. Women who were less convinced of their partner’s attractiveness reported decreased satisfaction with their partner after they had discontinued their pill.
