My Fiance keeps have a discussion about how he thinks i should cycle off of birth control for a couple months then get back on it bc he thinks it is bad to have my body at a constant state of “heightened hormones”. I remember the topic came up on time with my GYN bc she asked me why i had stopped talking the pill for a year (although that reason was bc my Fiance was deployed) she told me that its better for me to stay on the pill bc it gives me extra calcium in my diet and the level of hormones in pills is not very high and doesn’t need to be cycled off and on like they used to. I really don’t think i need to, i don’t have any side effects what so ever since i’ve been taking them. I have been using the same kind for 4 years off and on bc of his deployment but also i’ve been sick a couple time and have taken meds that counteract them.
Anyway when i told my Fiance this he thinks that she is just saying that bc it is her job to sell more RX pills so she can get gifts from pharm. companies or that the info comes from the companies trying to make money.
My question is do any of you know about this or had experiences with it?
(Obviously its my choice as to what i do, but i just want to know if i am wrong.)
