I recently abruptly stopped taking my birth control due to serious depression. I had only been off two days when I began spotting. I have since then started taking a new pill (just started today) and want to know if the soreness in my breast and extreme fatigue in the morning (along with the spotting) are because I stopped the origional pill? I dont know why I am so paranoid, because I have not had unprotected sex in the time period that I was not taking the pill.

In the first few months of any new hormonal method, side effects tend to be highest.

As well, if you stopped taking another pill mid-cycle, things are more likely to be wonky for a bit.
