i was on birth control for about 8 months and i had really bad depression and anxiety. i stopped taking the birth control May 26, 2017 and i still don't fee 100% myself. I've read a lot of stories about girls getting depressed and anxious because of Birth Control and saying that it took them about 3 + months to feel themselves again. Is this true? I know it takes your cycle a few months to go back to normal but does that also affect your anxiety/depression? I have been feeling way better since I stopped but sometimes the anxiety gets the best of me.
