I am 30 years old and I’ve been on the pill since year 2000 and went off it 2 months ago. It was mainly for protection, but it also helped regulate my menstruation…at least this is what I thought back then. Low libido, irritation, anxiety, fear, boredom, gaining weight, tiredness are just a few examples of how my life was for the past 14 years. Not to speak of lack of self-confidence, number 1 on the list. After reading the info on this site, I took the decision to go off the pill in a matter of minutes, because I arrived to a point where nothing was OK anymore. I started to take Vitex and Vitamin B complex in the first day of no pill. It took only 3 weeks until I started to...

I  was on the birth control pill for 3 years. I never really realized what it was doing to my body. After being on it for a year my personality had completely changed, I became more angry and I cried a lot more. I also because a rather jealous and crazy person.During the winter of year 3 I developed dizziness and nausea. Also during that winter I was sick every two week. I had the stomach bug 4 times and also got swine flu. I thought my immune system was doomed, I could never seem to feel good or healthy, I lost a lot of friends and I didn’t know what to do. I began having panic attack and was incredible anxious and depressed. At this point I had no interest in sex and...

I  was put on the pill for years due to irregular, painful periods. I was never given many birth control options, it was like the pill was the only thing available. I heard of an IUD and natural birth control methods but didn't know anyone who tried them and was naturally distrustful. I guess we get a little brainwashed when it comes to our options. After all, if you follow the money you will see why. I wasn't even really briefed on the birth control TYPES available to me. I tried one and it was fine but very expensive so I went on a more mainstream brand which made me nauseous. After I got sick of that, I went off, I started charting using the Billings Ovulation Method, and I was amazed at what I learned...

W  e all get pms. But imagine having constant pms for 4 years. I'm naturally a sensitive and emotional person, but I know I would have grown out of it sooner if it wasn't for the pill. My mom is very emotional but my dad is extremely level headed, and I've recently become much more like him. I can't blame it all on the pill, as I did go through a bad relationship during those years, and I do have my mom's tendencies, but all I know is after I got off birth control, I basically became a different person.  It's scary to think back and not recognize yourself and admit that hormones had such power over you. I would cry at least once a week, I had an insane anger problem, really short temper, and I just wrote...
