If you have been on hormones and quit, how long until it was out of your system? I have been cranky and grumpy for an entire year and I am sick of it. I was also sick of having to remember to take the darn thing.

Ironically, my midwife told me this week that she likes to call micronor the PMS pill because it contains progesterone, the hormone released in PMS and often a high dosage of it. That would explain A LOT.

So, I just got the copper IUD yesterday Plan on keeping it in a year before trying again.

So, thanks in advance if you have any info!

I had the same problem with Micronor! I stopped taking it two weeks ago because I felt like I was PMSing all the time. I was on it for a year also but the moodiness got MUCH worse when my cycle came back a few months ago. I felt a lot better after a week of not taking it and I am almost back to normal now after 15 days. I did read somewhere that it can stay in your system for up to three months. My next step is the Paragard too.
