When starting on contraception it’s always a big thing as to whether it will be the right one for you and how would your body react to it. There are so many to choose from and the best way to find out what is best for you is simply just to try it and if it’s not that move onto something else.
When I first started on the pill 3 years ago I never realised some of the effects it would have on me and my body. After two years of taking Micrognon, I started to suffer really bad headaches, which saw me take a trip the to opticians after several doctors appointments and then telling me it could just be my eyes, no mention that the pill could cause this. I did find out I needed glasses but the headaches were still as consistent as ever. So back to the doctors it was for me and I put the question to them if it could be the pill which one doctor told me it more than likely was if I’d had my eyes tested and they weren’t helping. They then put me on the mini pill Cerelle, which only made things worse for me. The headaches on days would ease up but my mood swings made me unapproachable from time to time, which meant these were having a bad knock on effect with my friendships and relationships. Not what I wanted. It really got the point where it was time to make a decision my health and relationships weren’t worth the battle I was having when taking the pill.
Coming off the pill was a big decision to make as I know this wouldn’t only affect me it would affect my partner too as I didn’t want to test any other form of birth control. We had sat down last year and have a discussion about the topic and the possible results it could have (me being pregnant). This was something we both were willing to accept as this year at some point we would start trying anyway. I have been off the pill for over 5 months now I felt this is the right time to write this post up as I know that the pill should be completely out of my body now. I took just over 3 months for my period to return. Read More
