what a rough situation. I’d suggest talking to your doctor about this. S/he may have an idea as to what side effects stopping might cause and also give you advice on other, non-hormonal forms of birth control if needed

@Hannahmn88:  Sorry you are going thorugh this.. IMO it does sound to be like a hormonal issue.

I myself tried getting on BC (for sexual activity) when I was 25 and it made my periods longer, and extremely painful, my boobs ache and my moods insane (and yes, sexual interaction unwanted) It made me realize how much your hormones can control your mood and well being…  So I stopped using almost immediately.

I have heard that BC either calms you and your pains or the opposite and extremly amplifies them. Each pill is different and they can adjust the doasge.

Talk to your Doc.. hopefully she/he can help. You shouldn’t have to be going through this. Sounds like you recognize your body is telling you that your BC is causing you to feel down as well as unhealthy. Listen to it.

@Hannahmn88:  omg when I was on BC that was the story of my life!! I would cry at the drop of a hat, be a total bitch, grumpy and snappy!! I tried about 6 different pills and they all made me moody, I didn’t feel like doing ‘anything’ with my BF etc etc.

it was only when a lady who worked with my mum said she had the exact same thing and had to come off the pill I decided that was what I was going to do. About 2 weeks after having no pill in my system I literally felt free as such, i think it was to do with all the synthetic hormones being pumped through your body!! I have never ever looked back, I was a COMPLETELY different, much happier and calmer person 🙂

now we just use condoms, and I’m very aware of when I am ovulating in case they failed us, but it’s the same with the morning after pill I had to take it once and it was like being on the pill again!! i never want to take it again!! I hope this helps!!!

(sorry this is quite long winded) lol
I have been on BC twice in my life and it totally changed me too, i was moody, paranoid, lazy, and just all over the place emotionally!
the first time i was in a relationship and wanted the handy way out when being intimate, once the relatiopnship ended I came off BC and I got really bad hormonal acne, it took months to re balance and get back to normal with help from lots of different skin meds from doc!
soo neway, the second time I went on BC after meeting FI, after only a few months I stopped taking it as again it was making me crazyyyyyyyy, and again, I got really bad hormonal acne, I tried the same medicated cream that cleared my skin up the last time but after a few weeks it wasnt workin I started researching natural remedies and began taking evening primrose oil capsules 3 times a day and, viola, spotless skin within one week, I havnt looked back since, so if you find you have any problems when you come off, go straight for these Sealed 
(I also was very prone to yeast infections and havnt had one since)Sealed

Hope this helps!!
