I have been on a number of different birth controls over the past years, and it seems like recently the ones I have tried (ortho cyclen & ortho tri-cyclen) have been making my constipation/IBS-C much worse. Does anyone know of any that are less constipating??

Couldn't see much difference in the side effects profiles of the few I checked. They all had abdominal cramps and bloating but not much mention of diarrhea or constipation, so I don't have much to go by, at least from rxlist.While they vary a bit in which hormones there isn't that much difference, and it may be how you respond to your own hormones (which can go either way) that may make a difference in which way you react.Let me check on the patch and ring side effects.Patch listed diarrhea in the side effects but not constipation.Nuvaring had the same listing as the pills I checked.
