I’m currently on my break from my pill and I’m debating not taking the new pack for a while due to side effects and because my boyfriend is going away for a month so it’s unneeded. Is it bad or unhealthy to keep starting and stopping the pill? Or am I better to just stick with it?

It’s not ideal to stop and start because it disrupts your hormones but you can if you want as long as you’ve been taking it for at least 7 days before and after you have sex. If side effects are bothering you then maybe change pills or contraception method. Maybe try a non hormonal one such as a copper iud?

Okay thanks for your help. I have been looking at the copper iud but A lot of research online mentions it causing weight gain which is a big negative for me.
