Re: moodiness?

Yes, the pill (any bc pill) can make you moody or depressed. Sometimes it goes away, sometimes not, it depends on the person. If it doesn't go away after 3 or 4 months, I'd say switch to a different one. I'm currently on Ovcon-35 for the second time, starting my 8th month. I don't have any depression with it this time. However, the first time around I was depressed for the entire time I was on it (four months), so I went off of it.

Re: moodiness?

I've just started to experience the same thing...I'm on a generic pill called Necon, I think it's the same formula as Ovcom, but I didn't start like this...I'm in the 11th month and I've just begun to cry like that about silly things. Will switching help, or should I wait it out?

Re: moodiness?

im on mircette, and theres usually one day a month where the smallest thing makes me cry.. its always for a dumb reason..usually something my boyfriend said that I took out of context, so he gets all worked up because he thinks he made me cry.. its so silly!! but after that one day a month (usually in the 3rd week of pills), im clear till next month.

but i was much much worse before i started the pill.. id have an entire week of depression and hell, instead of just 10 minutes.
