Birth Control and Mood Swings
I've been dating a girl about a month now, I'm 23 and she's 19. She started taking birth control before we even started datng, and she's been on it about a month and a half now.
The thing is that every few days or so, she'll have a day where she says she gets bad cramping and is on an "emotional rollercoaster" so to speak. It's nothing seriously intense, but she'll get snippy and things that wouldn't normally bug her at all (sarcastic jokes, etc.) will start to seriously get on her nerves and make me feel like I'm walking on eggshells a bit.
She will always tell me "oh, it must be this birth control again, I don't know why it does this to me" or make similar comments. Does being on the pill really affect your moods that much? I'm sure it does for some people and that everyone is different, but it seems crazy that a pill can do this much to her personality. Its not like she's awful to be around or anything, but on her "bad days" she can be super tempramental and it is obvious almost off the bat that she's having one of those days. Should she try something else? Is this just a temporary side effect?
