A couple years ago, I was on the Ortho-Evra patch. After a warning from the FDA about
high hormone levels
with the patch, my doctor pulled me off it. My body responded by making my hair fall out
in large amounts (this happened w/Depo too). I took a year or so off of any BCP and
I felt GREAT. My head was clear, I was upbeat and
sharp-thinking. Since going back on the BCP due to the endo, I just feel dull. I've read about
similar side-effects, worse with other pills.
