Extreme mood swings after taking micronor. Medication side effect?

Hello,.i ve been taking micronor for 3 months and i feel like constant pms . I over react to stuff, i go from calm to.extreme irritated and i find it hard to keep my self control. I have extreme mood swings and thought it might have something to do w the pill since it gets worse and more evident when i forget one and take 2 same day (happened 3 times). Is it possible?

Thanks for posting your query.
As you are on oral contraceptive pill Micronor (Norethindrone) which is form of progestin hormone. It can cause mood changes and depression as you are experiencing. You are advised to stop these pills and use other methods of contraception or alternative pills.
For proper switching of pills it is important to visit a doctor.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
