I've been on the pill since I started having sex 8 years ago. I just went off of it for a month and feel great! I hate the idea of messing with my hormones again, but I know I should go back on it since I'm nowhere near ready to get pregnant, nor am I in a committed relationship.
I'm curious, though, what the long-term effects of being on the pill are. Can it really be that good for my body to be on the pill for so long? I'm afraid I'm far from ready to have kids, which means I could be on it for another 5 years or so. So pretty much, all of my adult life this pill has been regulating my body.
Am I harming my body by going back on it? Since I've pretty much only had sex ever while on the pill, am I more likely to be really fertile off of it?
Thanks for your responses!
