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.
