This is all really interesting! I went off the pill a week ago (on it 6 years), after reading Mark's post. I had already done some soul-searching about it but I was afraid to quit because I'd heard there might be really bad side effects of quitting. Still, it seemed liked staying on it would ultimately be much more dangerous, and might possibly be keeping me from achieving the mental and physical health I want.
So far, no period (it's only been 9 days.) I feel more emotionally ALIVE, and I have more energy for exercise. I'm glad I'm not taking it anymore!
