Experience

On this birth control, I genuinely believed I had bipolar disorder. My mood swings were erratic, and so severe my boyfriend and I nearly split up over it. I cried, felt suicidal and then had bursts of happiness. My mum made me come off of the pill, as she had heard of these side effects from others. My doctor put me on a new pill called loestrin which I have been on for four months, and have had no mood swings, or if I have they have been extremely minor. My moods are great, and I am completely back to my normal self. If you are taking this pill, please please be aware of changes in your mood, because I did not link my mood swings to the pill and it almost had extremely bad consequences.
