I started the pill a few months ago. My boyfriend smokes more than a pack/day and on weekends we spend the whole time together indoors at his apartment.
Ever since starting the pill, my issues in addition to gaining weight and not feeling sexy around him, have been my concern about his second hand smoke. I am (or was
) petite, so smoke, pills, everything effects me more than a larger person. He smokes and smokes, and now that I am on the pill, it totally bothers me and I'm scared I am jeapordizing my health even moreso.
So basically I have been making excuses not to spend as much time with him (he's been smoking alll his life and that's something he will not quit so I don't even want to cause problems by asking him to) on top of not wanting to have sex. I know the smoke will make me have a stroke or heart attack very prematurely. I already experience bluriness with my vision, sometimes chest pain and my legs feel hurt oftentimes, a lot of the "serious" side effects listed.
All I need on top of this is smoke, right!!?
