Thanks for sharing your health concern with us. Your symptoms are due to the withdrawal effect of the hormone. They are likely to subside once you regain natural cycles. If there is no respite, please inform your health care provider for further management. Increase fiber and liquid content in the diet, take plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and exercise regularly. Hope this helps.
