- Can birth control cause depression or mess up your emotions?
- Q: I have been using Aviane birth control periods to help keep my menstrual cycle regular, light, and less painful since I was one of those unlucky ones who became violently sick during that time of the month. This will be my fourth month using it starting at 7:00 today. I have had a very good outcome with my cycle; however, since Saturday, August. 29, 2009, which is the day I began the "horemone-less reminder pills," I've felt extremely depressed. I usually feel like I miss my boyfriend while he's at work because he makes me happy when he's around, but I've felt so miserably alone and some what abandoned when he's done nothing, but try to make me happy and comfortable in our relationship which is NOT experiencing any hardships or tramatizing problems. We feel very much in love and happy. Also, all of a sudden, I felt like I didn't even love him anymore. I met with a good male friend of mine and felt like I was beginning to like him! I don't know why because I don't. I had a crush on him long before my boyfriend and I started dating. This caused me to become severely depressed because I love my boyfriend very much and he loves me, but I don't want that to change. We sat down at the park yesterday and talked. I told him everything and he understood. He kissed me a few times and the amazing feeling that used to come from it was gone! I felt like I was hugging and kissing my friend, but I didn't understand why. Of course, this made me feel worse and I began to feel sick to the point of vomitting. After our long talk, which was helpful, I felt 1% better. Slowly, my loving feeling for him came back. The feelings for my friend were not there, but I question if it was just my mind wondering and playing games with me. When we walked back to my house, he held me in his arms and I felt the same feeling I'd felt before this nonsense. I felt the same feeling of love when he kissed me as well. I don't understand how I can go from a few hours of wondering if I still love him, to crying and telling him the feeling is gone and I want it back, to feeling my same intense love for him. I just started the active pill today, so there are higher levels of this hormone in my system. Do you think the lack of this hormone caused my aweful mood swings? This has never happened before, but my doctor did say to expect to feel a bit sick for the first four to six months. This is the FIRST bad experience I've had while on the pills. What do you think?P.S. I feel normal, loving and happy today. This was not present during the week of my reminder pills.
- A: Yes, hormones can definitely give you mood swings and mess up your mood. The hormones in them act as neurotransmitters in your brain, and help regulate other neurotransmitters. Progesterone (which is in the pill) can make you depressed, estrogen can make you emotionally excited and angry, testosterone can make you feel sexual desire. That's just a brief summary--the effects are actually very large.

- How to get my mom to let me get on birth control without her thinking i am having sex?
- Q: So, my menstrual cramps are very brutal for about the first four days. I usually take about 12 ibuprofen (I have bad reactions to Midol and Pamprin) just on the first day because my cramps are soo terrible. I have told my mom that they are terrible and she simply says, "Yeah, mine were always really bad till after I had children, it just makes you a stronger person." Not exactly the answer I'm looking for. I have addressed her about going on birth control, telling her it will make my periods shorter and lighter, will prevent the terrible cramps, help regulate my period, etc.. She simply said, "And it will raise your blood pressure, make you gain weight, and increase your chances of cervical cancer and blood clots." Again, not the answer I was hoping for. I know if I push the issue she will assume that I am having sex because I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half now, and I am 19. I don't want her to assume that because that is TOTALLY not the reason I want to be on BC. I also know that I can go to health department and get birth control but I don't want to go behind her back. So how do I get her to consider the issue without her thinking I am a nympho?
- A: I can totally relate. I'm 19 also and just recently began taking bc last month (mostly for my EXTREMELY bad cramps but also because I'm sexually active). Since I love and respect my mother and still live in her house and still am covered by her medical insurance my doctor and I talked to her about birth control as an option. I then brought it up about a month later from that time, so it wouldn't be too bad of an attack on her, and it worked out pretty well. I simply told her that her opinion really does mean a lot to me and I feel better when she backs up my decisions. I told her that I am 19 and I can totally do what I want to but I care enough to tell her straight up and want support always. Just make her feel special. Good luck!
