Experience with Birth Control Pill and depression?
My 15 year old has anxiety and her period made things worse and more volatile. She went on the pill 3 months ago in hopes of stabilizing her mood with a plan to move to the implant. It’s been a really rough semester but now she is very depressed. She cries a lot which she rarely did before and is very reactive. Her sleep is also worse. When I try to talk about going off the pill she gets upset bc she doesn’t want her period but I am really worried to put in an implant (currently scheduled for later this week) given her depression. Her primary dr doesn’t think it causing it. Anyone else have a teen who got worse mental health issues on the pill? How did you handle it?
