Our expert says:
It can take up to one year for your menstrual cycle to return to normal after stop taking an oral contraceptive. Weight loss after cessation of an oral contraceptive is not necessarily expected but you can feel bloated and uncomfortable due to your hormones being imbalanced. If you are concerned, it is a good idea to consult your gynaecologist for an examination, papsmear and ultrasound. A papsmear is recommended on a yearly basis if you are sexually active.
