Our expert says:
Oral contraceptives alleviate depression in some women and worsen it in others. Evidence of depression, mood-swings, or feeling “blue” or “numb” while taking hormonal contraceptives is well-known.
If you geel it is becoming a problem, you may consider speaking to your doctor regarding a lower-dose pill, or even a different form of contraception.
All the best!
