... was still on the ring, I would've had my period on or around September 15. I have had very noticable abdominal bloating all week and no period. While on the ring, I never experienced PMS bloating. Is prolonged abdominal bloating normal after discontinuing the ring? I'm not retaining water anywhere else and I've had what feels like mild PMS cramps... keep expecting AF but nothing. Some light brown spotting yesterday but I had just had a pap done at the doctor so that could be the reason. My doc didn't even test me for pregnancy... saying that it'll take me a while to get back on track. Told him about the bloating and he said, "we'll see". Just hoping someone has experienced the same thing after discontinuing the ring. Anyone?
