For people emotional on birth control, do you think it's a specific hormone causing the trouble?

Do you think there is a specific hormone in the birth control that you react heavily to? I was wondering that when I switched from OrthoTriCyclene to OrthoCyclene Low. Just wonder if I'm the only one that had been on birth control that stopped and kind of had an idea of what pills would trigger my major mood swings in bad directions.

  • I tried 4 different birth controls and was crazy on all of them. Im now on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo and I love it! Im not sure exactly what hormone it is though. I looked through the booklet that comes with it and still couldnt find which hormone it was!
