Major side effects from birthcontrol?
I'm not talking some of the normal stuff but major?
Like 20+ lb weight gain?
Psychological effects? Panic attacks??
Blood issues? High BP?

    It didn't make you bipolar, it may caused mood swings but not clinically dx bipolar.

    Quoting wifeynmommie80:

    Birth control actually made me bipolar.  Like insane, I would  sweet one moment and then a total crazy bitch the next . Anything the slightest would set me off. I am no longer on birth control. Like my husband told me I can't live with you on it. I haven't been on it in 10 years.

     Some of the BC pills made me sick to my stomach. I had to go through a few to find one that didn't but they did find one.

    On da pills, I was nauseous 24/7. I always felt like vomiting, n I had no appetite. I switch to the nuva_ring n it was hell. After sex, the pain in my lower stomach was unbearable. It literally felt like I was being stabbed over n over again, n those pain last for days, then went away. I got off of those immediately, after I was sure it was da ring. I decided not to get on bc at all. My body juz don't agree w/ it.

    Sorry, I'm just seeing this :/ It was the only thing (taking them) that I started to do that was different. When I seriously felt like I was loosing it, I stopped and asked myself that question.
