Customer Question
Hello, I have been on...
Hello, I have been on birth control for the past 20 years on and off, I had my annual visit with my gyno two weeks and she recommended I get off birth control due to my elevated cholesterol levels and elevated liver enzymes. So I stopped it and now I'm feeling pelvic pain pressure in vaginal colon area, head ache, mild nausea. I did a urinalysis today and it was normal. I don't notice any vaginal bleeding slight vaginal discharge, very small amounts white color. What do you recommend, is this due to mengetting off pill?

Hello I'm Dr Chip

When did you stop the pills and when did these symptoms begin?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Two weeks ago and my symptoms started 2-3 days ago
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Chip, General practice replied 1 year ago

OK--the timing is classic then

Yes, this is from stopping the pills and your symptoms may continue for another week

But nothing at all serious here

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
