I took BC pills for over 10 years and had no problems with my Crohns. I think life would have been even worse if I had not taken them. After I had my tubes tied, I thought great no more BC pills, but I was then miserable 3 weeks out of the month. Briefly went back on BC to help some, but ended up having a complete hysterectomy. I think BC pills really help with the PMS symptoms. Good luck!
