  • You can get pregnant easier:)

    I get migraines and didn't get them any worse on the pill than when I was off. After you go off for a few months if you don't notice a change you may be able to go back on the pill. I take 5 meds to prevent migraines.

  • the upside is you are allowing your body to do what it is supposed to do. we don't know the "downsides" to preventing periods. i believe that we should let our bodies do what they are supposed to do. the biggest upside for you will hopefully be no more migraines!!!!
    good luck!
