: Yes! For 10 months, similar troubles.
: I recently (week and a half ago) to Ortho Tri Cyclen, so far okay. I had tried the shot and some other brand of pills a year or two ago and I almost did go insane. They said i had a sensitivity to estrogen and that Estrostep was the lowest possible. It made me break out and yes terrible mood swings. I can't stand the thought of other birth control methods that you have to think of at the moment. I also can't stand the thought of a child. I am a little afraid of surgery. I am going to wait a month to see if Ortho will be any better then i am going to look at anti-depressents. My thought was that my body would adjust to the estrogen. You say two years...
: e-mail me if you would like. I am at an okay day. But yes some days I freak out pretty bad.
I'm sorry to hear you have the same problem, but I'm also glad that I'm not the only one. Sometimes I think that I'm really losing my mind and I try to remember that it's only pms, but it's not like I can take a magic pill to make it all go away. There is only so much extra strenth Midol I can take! I can't wait until I have my exam in December so I can talk about this with my Doc. It's gotten really bad lately and if she can't offer me any relief, I'm getting off the pill for a while just to get back to 'ground zero'. Take care and email me if you'd like at Sook321@aol.com.
