Am I doomed forever as far as hormonal birth control goes?
After having my son my doctor put me on birth control. I informed her I don’t do well with the pill but she gave me a new pill with low hormones in hopes it wouldn’t effect me as much. It’s called lo loestrin fe. I started the pack last week and I’m not sure if it’s my imagination but ever since I started taking it I started having intense mood swings. I’ve cried at least twice and I keep getting these anger attacks out of the blue where I literally feel like I could rip someone’s head off. Having a new baby at home and dealing with anger outbursts isnt ideal. I never want to be angry at my son or take it out on him. These emotions are overwhelming. Can the pill do this to a person? Are these problems likely due to the hormones or is there some other issue? Please give any advice possible! I’m listening! If I have to stop the pill, I will. It’s not worth it.
