Birth Control


Wed, February 24, 2021 2:12 PM

Hello! I was recently diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis. My dr cannot find a cause and has recommended I stop hormonal birth control. My OBGYN, however, said there is no indication that birth control can cause IBD. I am feeling conflict and I really do not want to stop/switch my birth control if I don't need to. Has anyone had any experience with this?
