Addicted to Birth control?

Jun 12, 2019
Okay, weird topic i know. But I have always struggled at my “time of the month” since I was younger. Ridiculous mood swings, feeling fatigued and hot flashes, severe cramps and excessive bleeding..(sorry tmi) but the only solution I’ve found is to go on a bc pack that is designed to skip periods... however even only getting it 4 times a yr is STILL nerve wracking to me.. I anticipate the pain, the weight gain ( weight is also something ive also started to monitor like a maniac) , the feeling like complete garbage and looking as bad as I feel. Basically pms heightens my anxiety which set off the irritability, eating, etc so for a week and sometimes even a week after i just feel and look awful... I’ve sometimes gona and even skipped even those in my packs just because i dreaded feeling that way... i feel like its silly to say im addicted to a contraceptive but i guess it’s the only thing that keeps me feeling like “me” 24/7...

I'm the exact opposite bc makes me anxious..I absolutely loathe it. It makes me anxious, have zero sex drive, horid mood swings, breast tenderness galore, weight gain and insomnia lol. When I got off after a year I felt freeeeeeee. Everyone is diff so I'm addicted to not being on the pill . Do what's best for you and your body and you can't go wrong.
