I just came across this article, and I am just in the beginning of my research to decide whether or not to discontinue the pill. I have never heard of anything like this before, but having had a saliva hormone test (which led to my being prescribed natural progesterone treatment), I would have to say my symptoms coincide with pre-menopausal symptoms.
Could someone who has done a bit more research than myself offer any opinions on this article, or point me to other things I might want to read? I stopped taking the pill about two weeks ago, and I really think I am done for good. I think I am going to find a good naturopath and work on balancing my hormones naturally with food and possibly natural progesterone therapy. I know there is a lot of talk about birth control on this site, but has anyone else experienced pre-menopausal symptoms? Anyone get their hormones and bodies back in good working order? Thanks for your help, ladies!
