You're right when you say we are in the same foxhole, regardless of the amount of Tram we use. A problem for me is that because I live in Bangkok it's get and to abuse Tram. Every pharmacy has it. It's not illegal and you don't need a prescription. You can buy a box of one hundred 50 mil capsules for ( let's see..($200 * 30baht= $ (thirty baht = $1) Very accessible. But I still can't believe the amount I am taking. It has a real psychological effect on my determination.
Hi Gina, unfortunately it is possible and common. It can take anywhere from 6 months to 18 months or more for your hormones to level out and for your menstrual cycles to become healthy again after coming off the pill or any type of hormonal contraceptive. The hard thing is to be patient, but while you are waiting for your cycles to normalize you may want to take that time to address any nutrient deficiencies the pill may have caused, address your gut health, and make sure you are taking care of yourself – getting enough sleep, and managing your stress, etc. Your body may need time to find it’s way back after being exposed to those artificial hormones!
