Does anyone else notice something similar? I'm wondering if changing to another pill or getting off of it completely would make any kind of difference.
I can't particularly give much insight into this,apart from the fact that 5 months ago my naturopath that I was seeing recommended strongly that I go OFF the pill and seemed to think that it causes a high statistic of women to get some kind of long lasting fatigue effects. And that it messed around my hormones too much and that was related to my CFS and fibro.
To be honest,I'm not sure still. I'm still the same really and I can't believe I'm saying this,but I actually want to go back on it!!!
