Birth Control Board Index

[FONT="Trebuchet MS"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="Indigo"]Hi there. I'm new to the boards. I'm currently taking Necon 1/35 and I want to stop immediately. I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I figured I'd provide info about other birth controls I've taken as well. I started Ortho-Tri-Cyclen when I was 16 and was on that for 2-3 years. After that, I took nothing. After the birth of my son, at age 25, I started getting Depo injections for almost a year. That particular birth control was a poor choice for me personally so I switched to the Necon that I'm currently taking. Between both the Depo and the Necon, I've been on birth control consistently for 4 and a half years. Recently, I've been having chronic yeast infections (6+ months), libido problems, dryness, and pain during intercourse. Although I'm not 100% sure the birth control is what's causing these problems, I have a sneaking suspicion it is, and I figure stopping it would be a good way to find out. I'm somewhat nervous about stopping because it's been a long time since I stopped the Ortho and I don't really remember what it was like the last time I stopped, as I'm now 30, and me being 18 and stopping birth control was 12 years ago. I'm most concerned about these things:

•Will my libido increase after stopping?
•Will the pain/dryness I feel during intercourse subside once I stop them?
•Could the BC pills be the yeast infection culprit? Prescription meds such as Diflucan do not get rid of my yeast infections.
•How bad should I expect my mood to be? Reminiscent of Medusa perhaps? :p
•Estimated time on how long it will take my body to return to normal? Assuming such an answer can be given considering everyone is different.

Thanks so much for responses in advance. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
