guess i'm just never having sex again... im only 9 days into the birth control and i've been consistently depressed for the last 8... so obviously i can't handle the hormones :( i'm taking the lowest dose pill available and i still can't handle it.

Same thing happened to me. I've heard the IUD's are a lot safer now...perhaps
you could talk to your OB about that...whatever you do
don't get on the depo shot...made me a lunatic! Do you think getting used to the
birth control pills for a little longer than 9 days might try 30-45 days and
see if you stable out? Does your Ob Dr. know about the Bipolar? Is she reccomending
the easiest pill for tolerance with a mood disorder? Could you take other hormones that
would counter-act the depressive side effects? Just wondering. Good luck...I know there
is a solution to every problem and you will find it.

I have to take birth control beause I have poly cystic ovarian syndrome and I need it or I will be in a lot of pain. You should ask your doctor to maybe put you on a different pill if its still messing you up after the first 30 days. Not all birth control is the same, hope that helps.
