Ever since I started taking a contraceptive pill, I feel like I have less control over my emotions, and sometimes I feel depressed for no reason. Could this be related to my pill?
Health expert Dr Graham Duncombe from Skin & Body Renewal responds:
“All contraceptive pills have side-effects which can vary greatly from person to person. Feeling emotional or depressed can most certainly be one of these side-effects, but unfortunately changing your pill may not solve the problem. My suggestion to you would be to make an appointment with one of the Health Renewal doctors so that we can look at your hormone balance in more detail. Careful analysis of your hormone levels and general state of health is required to see the full picture. We can then assist you with a personalised supplement plan which will balance your hormones and stabilise your emotional state.”
