When I'm not on the pill (or pregnant) I have terrible skin, thinning hair on my head (not noticeable to others but I notice it), very itchy scalp, darker hair on my legs and down my thighs...eek!
But while TTC I was on Metformin, which helped (skin was fine!). And I felt slimmer on that.
So I'm not sure what I'll take after my baby is born. Probably the pill again if my doctor won't give me Metformin.
