Hello, I am looking for advice from an MD professional. Can getting off of birth control cause you to have insomnia? I know that they are full of hormones and I an afraid that since I was on BC for 3 years, my body needed those hormones to sleep properly? Do you know if that could be correct? I know most people get OFF birth control and are able to sleep better... but could it be the opposite?
