Anyone get increased anxiety starting birth c? Prob unrelated, but I’m on day three of a low dose birth c to ironically help regulate my hormones and I’m super anxious and nervous. 10 weeks postpartum. My doc recommended bc over the mirena to help with hormones. Thanks!
I’ve tried 3 different bc pills and they all made my depression & anxiety go through the roof. If you don’t have an underlying problem hopefully it will get better with time. Docs don’t seem to understand the impact on our mental health, but unfortunately it is very common. One brand I had to stop on day 5 because I was beyond psycho depressed. I assume they may have you on progesterone only? My doc recommended I try that next... I’m super sensitive to all meds & just am now starting another antidepressant, tried a few before which didn’t work. Good luck!
