birth control and mood/mental side effects

so... i'm having to stop taking the pill because i've discovered that anytime i'm on the pill it affects my mood very seriously, and i was just wondering if anybody else has had any of those kinds of problems with it, and also if there are any other forms of birth control other than condoms that won't affect my mood like this.

  • My sister was on a pill that made her VERY moody. She switched three times before she found the right one for her. I have the Mirena IUD and have had no side effects concerning mood.

  • I was absolutely mental when I was on the pill. I went off and returned to normal. I was crabby, moody, no sex drive, and gained weight.

    I have no other bc recommendation for you. My husband just uses condoms.
