i used birth control for 3 weeks stopped, and now constantly feel sick, is that normal?

Hi Kitkat123, It can be

Hi Kitkat123,

It can be normal to feel ill for a few days to a week after stopping the pill. However, 3 weeks seems to be a bit long. Your hormones should be back to normal by now. Of course, every woman is different and perhaps you are just more sensitive than other women.

I recommend calling or visiting you doctor. This will allow your doctor to diagnose if anything else is going on and or put your mind at ease and hopeful find out how much longer you can expect to feel this way.

Best of Luck,
