Withdrawal: When coming off birth control the body will attempt to recalibrate itself. This may result in unpleasant side effects that include erratic mood, increases in sensory sensitivity (e.g. Smells and scents), breast tenderness, reduced breast size, inconsistent or heavy menstruation, cramping, acne and some weight loss.
