Mom told me that the birth control pill made her depressed. My response was “I’m already on antidepressants, who gives a fuck, also as if it can make you that depressed”. Wrong again. It made me very angry and apathetic. I was on it since I was young so I didn’t really know the difference between being a teenager and side effects from the pill. There’s more and more evidence that the pill isn’t good for women. I’d get off it if I were you. The copper IUD is not hormonal. The pill is not a good thing though. Like one of my friends said, “in a hundred years we’ll look back and think, why were we giving women poison like this?” Maybe in a hundred years they’ll have figured out gluten properly too.
If you’re suffering from depression or autoimmune symptoms, this is another thing to get out of your body.
