Levest combined pill mood swings and anxiety

side-effects

#1

@Dr_Paula Hi! I’ve been taking the levest combined pill for a few months now and it’s been fine on the whole, but I’ve noticed that during my pill breaks i feel really down and emotional, so I was wondering if this was being caused by this pill. I never felt this emotionally all over the place during my period before taking the pill.
Thanks!

Hello @nicolesara34

I am very sorry for my slow reply. There is no good research evidence to associate the pill with mood changes but many people report that it changes their mood. If you are finding that you have mood changes in your pill free break then one thing to consider would be to take the pill continuously. Have you thought of trying this at all?

Many thanks

Paula
