Re: Birth control pills and other health problems getting worse
Birth control pills can definitely affect your digestive system, and they create a favorable environment for excess yeast overgrowth, and not just vaginal candidiasis. You can have Candida overgrowth in your digestive tract, and Candida absolutely makes IBS worse, as well as causing a million other symptoms in every system of your body. Your best bet is to switch to non-hormonal birth control, but if you choose not to do that, there are supplements you can take that can help overthrow the yeast overgrowth such as probiotics like acidophilus (which is good for IBS, anyway), and other anti-fungals. I personally do not like the effects of bc pills, as they also deplete your body of valuable nutrients.
Vestibular problems, CFS, adrenal issues.
