Mood swings. - April 11th 2009, 12:01 PM

The past few days I've been having mood swings, I could just be sat talking to my girlfriend feeling happy and then suddenly I feel annoyed and upset and then I'll go back to feeling happy and it's causing problem. When I'm annoyed and upset I start to snap, take it out on people that don't deserve it/haven't done anything and I say things to try and upset/hurt them. It's like I realise what I'm doing and I know I should stop but I can't stop until my mood changes and then it's too late to do anything about it, leaving me upset.

I don't know what to do because it's really upsetting me. I'm thinking it could be because I'm suppose to be on my period (I'm on the pill and I skipped this months) and I'm just having the usual moodiness but I don't think I can deal with this every month because it's getting me down.

I know what you mean, Charlie. This happens to me when I get my Depo shot for the first week or so and it upsets me as I can feel myself being mean but I can't stop. If I feel really low I try to take myself away for a minute, either by using the "I need the loo" excuse or if you feel the person you are with is understanding maybe explain to them how you feel?

If this is connected to the pill and the pill isn't suiting you then maybe speak to your doctor about this?

Take care,

Live on love.

Birth control can cause moodiness and mood swings. The first three-five months you may have these symptoms, but if they get to where they're severely interfering with your life, you need to speak to the doctor who prescribed them and maybe your pharmacist. They may be able to make some suggestions or tell you if you may need to change birth control.
