    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Birth Control ?
    An_248243 posted:
    I have been suffering from many different symptoms for a while now and I am wondering if they are related to one another or if they might be brought on by birth control. These symptoms have become overwhelming intense over the last two weeks....Excessive crying (everyday several times a day), nipple pain, nausea, unable to control my mood or reaction to things, I have been on ortho lo for 5-7 years and no I am not pregnant. Please any suggestions or advice would mean a great deal to me. Thank you for your time.

    Breast tenderness, nausea and mood swings are some of the common side effects from oral contraceptives. It is a bit unusual that someone who has been on these for as long as you have would suddenly begin experiencing these but it's possible.
