I never gave thought to this until a day or two ago. My doctor put me on micronor for birth control. Its a progesterone pill only. I have been taking it daily and am almost through my first month. This past week I have spiraled into a crazy ass depression. I find myself actually screaming at the top of my lungs now and crying fits all the time. I have no desire to be a mother anymore. I straight up get so angry at my son even when he is just sitting there smiling at me. I say horrible horrible things and I think horrible things. I feel like I'm going crazy. So I thought maybe I have PPD and im not ruling this out at all, trust me. Then a thought occured to me. I have been on these stupid pills for almost a month now and only lately since I have started them has my anger shot through the roof. So I started looking up about this pill and saw a whole WACK of people saying they felt the exact same way as me, that they were miserable on this pill. So they stopped taking it and were fine afterwards. I'm thinking I am going to stop taking this pill as of today to see if that helps and make a doctors appointment. And I dont really worry about getting pregnant again because my sex drive is non existent atm. But if it is these stupid pills making me go nuts, I will find a different form of birth control then this.
Has anyone taken this before? Did you get any symptoms from it? Was it worth it for you?
I have the implanon in my arm (which has the same hormone in it) .. i went to see my DR today about getting it removed because i was positive it was what was making me depressed, tired, no sex drive, no motivation, hating motherhood, getting angry at the babies, acne etc..
After talking with her she said it would probably be contributing a tiny bit (acne etc) due to the hormones, but she asked me a whole bunch of questions & said she thinks ive got PPD - i have all the signs for it - listed above.
I've been put on medication (prozac) today and im really hoping it works.
We've decided to keep the implanon in for now, we are going to try and levels out my moods etc first and if that doesn't work and the implanon is the cause we will remove it.
thanks. I hope things work out for you as well. I was put on prozac years ago and I hated it. It messed with my body way to much and didn't help me any. I was stubborn back then so I just stopped taking it and didn't try seeking out any different meds. I keep putting off going to the doctor because...I dont know I just make excuses for myself but this has gotten out of control. So I have the phone number infront of me and im going to call. I can only make an appointment for Saturday because the only way of me getting there is by my husband driving me and my doctor isn't in office anymore by the time my husband gets home from work during the week. I still am going to stop these birth control though. Ill see what he says about it
