Depression/anxiety and orthro tri cyclen lo? and stopping birth control?
I have been on this pill for 8 years and have notice that I have been depressed, moody and very anxious as well as have no libido compared to before. I just assumed it was my life but when I'm on the green pills (on my pd) I'm much more relaxed and happy and have a libido it just sucks that I'm on my pd that week and have of course menstrual pains and sex isn't so much fun on the pd.
Any other women have these problems on birth control pills? I tried others in the beginning and this seemed to be the best.
My second question to this is-If you stopped taking birth control pills how did you feel after? Were your own hormones crazier than bcp hormones? Did your period regulate out? Was it worse being on or off the pill?
