Has anyone else experienced anxiety while on birth control pill?

I have stared taking the pill 5 days ago. My two month slept a whole 10 hours last night for the first time! I only enjoyed 3 of them because I could not go back to sleep. I had racing thoughts and anxiety which I have never had before. Do you think this could be the pill? I am so pissed as I missed a great opportunity for SLEEP!

  • ANY type of hormonal BC will do that to me. Pills, depo, nuva ring, norplant, you name it I can't take it for that reason.
