I was on Nuvaring (I miss it) but had to get off hormonal BC because of other health reasons. I have noticed an increase in my symptoms since I've been off. Did you happen to change from a full hormone to a progesteron only or something like that? Maybe you can tell if estrogen was making things better? Its a good idea to bring this up to your doc too because besides IBS it could point to other things going on maybe with your reproductive system as well. PCOS is an example of a disease that requires BC to function normally. Good idea to get it all checked out.
Good luck and take care
