Side effect of Micronor birth control

I have been on Micronor birth control for 6 months now after being on the IUD for 5 years. I felt great on the IUD, just did not want to get another one. The problem I am having on the Micronor is that I am experiencing anxiety , depression , and fatigue. I did not feel this way prior to taking it. I take it at the same time every night. I was on Micronor before after my children were born and I felt the exact same way, I just thought it was Postpartum. Could this really be the cause?

The problems you are stating could be because of pills, so have a consultation with family planning doctor and choose other method of contraception. Check your thyroid status as well, these problems are seen in hypothyroid patients as well.
