I went off my birth control pills 2 weeks ago.
I feel SO MUCH BETTER.
I have been on and off birth control since I was 18 years old.
I have never felt quite right on it.
After Awful and I broke up and I made my pilgrimage home, I went off of it and in a few months, I did feel a bit better, but I didn't connect it. I was simply in a better place for me emotionally, so everything felt better, birth control or not.
In October, when things started to get serious with Crush, I went back on it.
This time, the change was very clear to me. I felt like every little thing was setting me off. My emotions were ALL over the place. I was picking fights with Crush on a daily basis. He kept asking me, "is everything alright?" and it was and it wasn't all at the same time.
The birth control elevated my anxiety and I also put on some new pounds...but I am not sure that it was directly related as I was binging a lot and often...but, I was feeling very hungry. I felt super tired. I felt like I was viewing life from behind a veil.
A few months ago, Smartie Best Friend mentioned that when she was on birth control, everything upset her and she just didn't feel like herself on it.
I called my doctor and she explained that sometimes, it takes a few different tries on several different types of birth control to see what works best. I knew this and didn't feel like taking any for a while, so I ended my pill pack and now I am taking a BC vacay. I am not seeing Crush until August and condoms are fine for now.....I am so stressed out with everything going on, I don't have any lusty feelings in me anyway.
I think my body just doesn't deal with hormones well.
Anyone else feel this way?
