I don't even remember what my periods were like in 2004, man.

What was it like for you to quit hormonal birth control after using it for a long time - let's say 5 or more years?

I know it's different for everyone, but I'm about to quit using HBC after 8+ years without a month's break and I'm a little nervous about what it'll be like. I want to get some sense of the range of experiences people have had so it's at least a bit less likely my body will manage to really surprise me. Did you feel like your personality was different? Did you have spotting? How long did it take for your periods to get regular again, or to start ovulating?
