Does the contraceptive pill have an effect on the nervous system?

Does the Contraceptive pill have an effect on your nervous system? I am a 20 year old female and I have been on the contraceptive pill for 4 years and recently decided to stop taking it. I dont want anything in my body affecting my natural balance anymore. I have found that my sense of touch has improved, I can feel both pain and also pleasure like I never did when I was on the pill, it s like I was numb before. Does the pill affect the nervous system in any way that could be causing, or contributing to this?

Welcome in health care magic,
contraceptive pills contain oestrogen, progestrone hormone, but in much less amount. Continue use of pills has side effects. These hormones are carcinogenic in nature. Effect on nervous system is not much more. Stop taking pills after four years of use is a good decesion. Now you can use copper T.

Hi,thanks for query.There is no such things reported.The problem that you had might be because of some vitamin deficiency or otherwise.Again it is recommended that you should take a brake for couple of months after 3 years of continuous usage.please discuss this with your doctor.

I took the plan b pill on Monday around one in the afternoon, (about 15 hours after having unprotected sex) before taking it I felt very nauseous. After taking the pill I felt even more nauseous, my stomach hurts, I m quiet tired, tend to be very sleepy, and I also feel like I m having flu symptoms. I m getting a bit nervous. Are these normal side affects of taking the pill?

Hello! I was wondering if it would be effective to take marvelon 28 birth control pills as an emergency contraceptive, and if so, how many? I am not on the pill anymore as I found out all oral contraceptives use lactose as a binding agent, and I am lactose intolerant. Sidenote: condom was used, it broke. Any help is appreciated, than you!

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
