Hello, I am 16 year old female and I am

Hello, I am 16 year old female and I am currently on the contraceptive pill (20mg ethinyl, 100mg levonorgestrel) I have been on the pill for 10 months now. For about a year I have been experiencing mood changes, these moods include depression, anxiety, symptoms of which I believe are derealisation, about a few days to a few weeks later I feel quite happy and energetic again. This then falls back into the same cycle of depression etc. I have had suicidal thoughts but they aren’t as common anymore, I am worried that I will return to the same state as before. I am on the contraceptive pill as I had been dealing with severe period pain that would make me pass out, my periods are now much better and manageable. I would like to know whether or not my prescription could be the reason why I am feeling this way and what I should do about it.

Thank you in-advance

Hello, I m an 18 year old female and this is a sexual health question. Normally before my period my breasts get tender and I feel tired and moody and then I have a heavy flow and sometimes my period is late no more than a week. I am sexually active and my period was late by one day and the day after I had the contraceptive implant put in ( 3 days ago) and I have since not had my period. I ve been using condoms as a contraceptive previously and I am worried that I am in fact pregnant or is it possible that the side effect of not having a period whilst with an implant hs already started working? If you could let me know that would be great.
