So is the depot a regular injection then Lillie? Glad it's helped to even out your moods. It's something to think about, thank you!

I found going on the pill (progesterone only) makes the world of difference. It really helps my physiological mood problems with periods and makes the mental stuff much easier to deal with too.
I'd stay on it even if I wasn't in a relationship.
Plus it's made my periods pretty much non-existent.
Less period stuff is a nice added bonus, thanks Jodie!

I'm glad that's helpful Irene. I didn't know you could take extra meds or extra, dosages to assist but that's something I was wondering because I began to think I should just go back on AD's. The problem there is that I never took them consistently anyway, but if I get adequate contraception I can see if this is a specific hormonal thing or a general slide.

Changes in hormones can do all sorts of things to your mood. It is definitely worth speaking to a doctor or prescribing nurse (depending on your surgery) about this. There are so many options out there for contraceptives even if one type doesn't help you there most likely will be another that will.
Thanks Sarah that's really reassuring.
