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
