Although not all women experience mood changes while using "the pill", research does indicate that its use is associated with depression, anxiety, and other emotional changes. I suspect that women with a history of mood disorders may be especially susceptible to these side effects.
If you are using hormonal birth control and believe that it may be affecting your mood, contact your health care professional. For information on reliable, hormone free family planning, see Serena (Canada) or CCLI (USA).
