I've never know anyone to have such a reaction to the pill. I've been on it for years however I'm already on anti-depressant meds so who knows if I'd have had the same reaction.

Jade is right - a therapist may be necessary if it can't be dealt with simply by changing pills. Be aware, though, that it can take months for symptoms to subside once you change pills. It generally gets better gradually, not miraculously overnight. When I tried it, it was like having nightmarish PMS continually, so I imagine that she's going through hell right now. I'm sure it's rough on you, too, but she will go back to the person she was.

FUCK THAT SHIT!!!!!!
just started the nuvaring today...im hoping that having the hormones concentrated inside my vagina, instead of them going through my whole body with the pill, willl get ride of all those emotions. there are so many more options in birth control besides the pill, that she should be able to pick something out with the doctor. hope she gets better soon so you can put the birth control to good use

So when guys complain about using condoms, I tend to get pissed off, sure they are inconvenient, but compared to fucking up some's body chemistry it is a *very* small price to pay.

But they are hormones. If she's feeling big changes since she started taking the Pill, she needs to see her gynecologist.
There are varying levels and strengths of hormones in different types of the Pill. Maybe her gynecologist could have her try a different type.
Or she could try the other forms of birth control that exist. There are shots and implants and all kinds of birth control. Have her look into something different.
Don't give up yet.

Been on it since I was 24 again... Am now 36...
Certain pills do affect a person negitively... So if she really wants to be on it, she just needs to find the correct one for her...

I don't know about her, but that was one of the things my gynecologist told me before I left her office that day I got the prescription... I even set a daily alarm because I don't want to forget and end up fucking myself by getting knocked up...

if she's having trouble, she needs to get off it.
