Experience

I've been on some sort of contraception for 13 yrs, 5 yrs of which i had a IUD after my child, then went onto take cerazette when it was removed as the doctor said it was the lowest dose of hormone. I've been taking it for 2 years but roughly in the last 6- 8 months ive been irritable,moody, negative thoughts ( recently this great fear of dying), anxiety, breast have gotten bigger, always had irregular bleeds on this pill. Recently ive also have been getting a lot of dizziness and headaches. I have decided to come off birth control a week ago and will do for a while and maybe go onto a different type of POP pill.
