Hi all, i need some advice!!
After a recent visit to the gaeno, suspicions of me having either IBS or Endometriosis (which i think is the real case) they have prescribed me to take the contraceptive pill. I am currently on just the normal one which is called something long but starts with a “M” i am going through my third cycle with it at the moment as of today and have noticed something rather strange.
I have become very over emotional and somewhat something close to depression. All i feel like doing is crying all the time as much as i can over stupid little things and sometimes when im crying i cannot seem to give a answer as to why i am crying or upset. My mum and boyfriend have both noticed the change and i feel sorry for my boyfriend as he has to sit there at times trying to help me when my answer as to why im crying is “I DONT KNOW!!”
My mum was thinking of me changing the pill to “DIANE” which i was prescribe a while ago but never followed through with (before my visit to the gaenocologist) as i have heard a lot that it is brilliant for bad skin and ever since starting this pill my back has been covered with pimples and i get random ones in random places on my face ie (females adams apple and cheek bones).
Is there any advice out there?? Is it likely the pill is the cause of my emotions being so ‘up and down’? Has this happened to anyone before? Will changing the pill perhaps change my emotions and take me back to somewhat normal?
I really would like help because its affecting my life in a very big way. I cry over the littlest things that even i think are pathetic.
I am an emotional wreck also on Ortho Tri-Cyclen! Some pills make you crazy!!! haha! Are you on Microgestin or something like that? I took that for a very short time about 2 years ago...like I said...short time. The side-effects were too much.
