I'm honestly pretty terrified to start. I dropped about 15-20lbs over the course of two months (February to March) and lately I've been getting huge pimples (just one or two at a time) when I never would before. I've also been a bit crabby these days and I don't know why. I think I lost the weight because of stress mostly, but I'm not sure (I don't want to gain the weight back, though). I feel like my hormones are out of whack and I'm scared that starting birth control pills might exaggerate these effects.
I ask because I have a super important conference this Wednesday. I have to be at my best and I have to practice for it as well. If I start birth control pills this Sunday, do you think side effects might wear off by then? My Dr. and the pharmacist both said I would be fine, but I just wanted to know about your experiences and any thoughts on the matter.
