Anyone on here who's on the pill but not sexually active/not planning to be sexually active for a while? Sometimes I feel like it's a "waste" to be on the pill because I haven't had sex in a while and don't plan on doing it any time soon either. When I got on the pill years ago, my periods got alot lighter and I have minimal cramping now + my skin cleared up. And I don't think the pill has really messed with my emotions/made me more depressed either (which I've seen many women say). I guess I just want to see if there are any other ladies on here who use the pill for reasons other than protection.

Yes. I’m staying on it for my skin, lighter periods and because I don’t want to adjust on and off it because I know I’ll need it again sometime. Just not any time soon lol. I am debating switching to an IUD though.

Even if I wasn't sexually active I'd stay on the pill to skip my periods. It's for more than just pregnancy prevention

When I was single I stayed on birth control.

I use the pill so I don’t have periods, that’s basically the sole reason really. It also makes it easier though when I do meet someone and exclusively sleep with them.

Yeah I went on the pill when I wasn’t sexually active. I wasn’t active for a long time. I went on it for my skin and for skipping my periods which were really heavy. It isn’t a waste at all if you’re getting benefits from it.

I like being on mine since my “period” is now only 2 days each pack (during the placebos) and super light. I also have family history of endometriosis and my dr said it helps prevent that in me.
