Has anyone else had a problem wearing contacts while taking birth control?
I started taking birth control (Microgestin) about four months ago, and within the last month, I had to stop wearing contacts. All of a sudden my eyes started getting really irritated and red when I would wear them, and now I can’t have them in for an hour without causing them to be bright red and burning for at least the next day (even when I’m no longer wearing the contacts). I saw that it can be a side effect of BC, but it sounds uncommon. Has anyone else had this problem? I plan on switching, but don’t know what to switch to, because I would really like this problem to go away. Anyone know of any kinds that don’t cause this? (I know that side effects are subjective, but I’m curious if brands or types make a difference)
