I’m currently living with MS and have been on the contraceptive pill for 10 years. I’d like to stop taking it, not to get pregnant, but just to have a break and I’m interested to hear if anyone had any increased MS symptoms when coming off the pill? The reason I ask is that as MS is so closely linked to hormones e.g. many women experience relapses after giving birth, I worry that stopping the synthetic hormones I take through the pill could have an impact on me.
I can’t seem to find any information about this online and my neurologist wasn’t too helpful and didn’t really listen to my concerns. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
