    I've only been on 2 pills, firstly I was on levest I think and it was horrible I was crying all the time and I was miserable. I changed to femodene 1 and 1/2 years ago and it's been fine but I was wondering if anyone else gets really emotional on the 7 day break. Is this normal, like normal period hormones. I only worried due to the news as it's stating that the pill contributes to women having anxiety and depression. I had both of these previously and I don't feel that but I just want to know other people situations with this pill

    The pill works in that you dont have normal hormones levels, the "periods" are a result of withdrawing from the drug but read your patient information leaflet and speak to a doctor if you are concerned.

    It's fairly common to experience depression while taking the pill, your mood is influenced by your hormones and the pill messes with your hormones

    personally I've experienced the same as you, I have struggled with depression but since being on the pill (yasmin) I feel absolutely fine while I'm taking it, but really horrible during the break week - for me it's worth it because I run 3 packs together at a time so only have a break week every 10th week.
