I have been on birth control since I was 17 or 18. I've tried the pill, the shot, and the ring. As time has gone by, I've realized that it's been the birth control giving me all these crazy physical effects, as well as terrible anxiety. I stopped the ring yesterday after being on it for 2.5 weeks. I believe that if you can go without putting any medicine or unnatural stuff in your body it's way better. Also, I'm going to get off my sleeping pill. I already feel better since lowering the dosage of klonopin. I can't wait to start feeling like myself again.
