Does hormonal birth control make you moody?

:/

I am on the mini pill and it puts my head in a fog. I can tell when I forget to take it because I start feeling more productive.

  • it makes me puke like I did in the first half of both my pregnancies, I never kept taking it long enough to see if the side effects wore off, I hate to puke

  • Weird- I have been doing that a lot more lately. Especially in the mornings. I thought it was just stress. All the pregnancy tests I have taken came back negative.

  • Moody, no. It sent me to the emergency room almost every month for a year with killer ass migraines, which stopped as soon as I finally figured out what was going on and quit taking the pills.

  • Oh, the mini pill doesn't give me migraines, just the kind with estrogen does. But the mini pill didn't work for me, either. I got pregnant on it twice. Lost those babies, but still, they were conceived on the progesterone only pill.
