I do like the pill for controlling my periods - one every three months - because of anemia. The monthly bleeding was too much for my system while I was flaring, I just couldn't build up my iron stores.
However, anything that messes with your hormones could cause problems!
I do agree - if dropping the pill would fix my guts, it would be no contest!
