    Default Mini pill and anxiety depression

    Hi
    I have been taking microlut the mini pill for over a week now and have noticed a few changes and wondering if its me or the pill.

    I am getting social anxiety .. I go out and have twice had people stare at me and talk.. I don't recognise either of them and it made me feel like i wanted to race home and hide in a box. I don't want to leave home.

    Also feel disconnected from dh not wanting him to touch me

    I think i will come off it now just in case. I don't want to get worse and really just stay home all day..

    I had the Implanon, which is the same hormones as the mini pill, just a different way of getting it into your body.
    Anyway, it gave me social anxiety (agoraphobia) and depression, amongst other things. Not long after I had it removed and I started to feel normal again

    I was on microlut after DS1, and it made my depression/anxiety a lot worse than it usually was. I also struggle with other forms of hormonal contraception too, put on weight, depression and headaches, so i'm not sure if it was just the microlut. I definitely didn't feel great on it.

    i was on the mini pill for 8-10 weeks and it made me feel horrible. absolutely horrible. once I went off it I started to enjoy being a mother and began to actually enjoy life again.

    In response to the OP - I love my hubby and we've always enjoyed a tactile relationship but microlut made me feel revulsion towards him. He couldnt even get a hug out of me!

    once we stopped I even wanted to have sex again!
