Question I really need advice

Hello!

it's been awhile since I last posted--but I was on junel fe 1/20 for about 7 or 8 months and I stopped taking it because of moodiness, lack of sleep, lack of sex drive and I wasn't getting my period but my PMS was HORRID...well now, a few months later I'm feeling a lot better BUT after a broken condom (everything is A OK tho) I figure I should be using BC as a back up...

Can anyone give me some input on other low dose bc? I can't take a normal dose because even on low dose I can sometimes act crazy/moody etc.
... anyone know of any that I can try? I know that the pill no matter what will effect people differently but its always good to hear some input thanks so much in advance!

Annie,

Birth control pills in general deplete B vitamins (thus the moodiness). Just take a B complex vitamin with your next pill. You should be fine. I've actually tried this and it does work good.

Re: I really need advice

You're quite welcome. I'm not suprised that you never knew about it. I didn't know about it before either. I found out through my own research and experience. It's not the kind of information doctors share openly with their patients. They'd rather just keep prescribing you different pills (and getting your money) in hopes that 'something' might work eventually. Good luck.
