I am so glad to have found this site. I recently switched my BC pill to Yaz and had increased anxiety, palpitations, etc. I am an anxiety patient, but it had been quiet for soooo long....I went off the pill and felt better for the most part. Now I've realized that mid-month (ovulation time) I am MISERABLE, ANXIOUS, DEPRESSED and having some pretty awful back pain. I felt today like someone else had taken over my body because I'd never been so sad or short tempered before. I don't know what to do. I wanted to stay off of a BC pill, but I wonder if the only way to stop this it to get back on one? I'm waiting for a call back from my therapist. I called her because I was so freaked out by the way I felt, that I was worried something serious was wrong. I still feel totally bummed right now, but I'll admit....a lot of the regular anxiety lifted when I read that so many women felt like I do. It's the first thing that made me smile today. Not to say I would wish this on any of you though. Never would. It's hard and I can't imagine feeling like this for the rest of my life. I'm only 28. God, would that make for a long life?!?!

Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum.  I am sorry you are going through this bad time and I feel you are on the right track by talking with your therapist.
Also if you felt better on the BC you may want to see your GYN physician and talk about your sx. 
Anxiety is one of the most common symptoms of Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), post-childbirth, and perimenopause (the period of time before the onset of menopause). It may take the form of panic attacks, nervousness, sweating, intense fear, anxiety combined with depression, or other overwhelming symptoms. 
Hormones may play a huge role in anxiety for many women so please do follow up with your Doctor.
Again a warm welcome to you.
