My doctor prescribed Ortho-Cept due to problems with uterine cysts and for my acne and this is my first month on it. It has caused some unbearable side effects. One being extreme fatigue. I'm a mom and a student so this is NOT GOOD. It has also triggered some depression and moodiness. I know it's too early to see any positive effects on my skin, but I do see some negative ones. Anyway, I called my doc the first week and she told me to try to hang in there for the month. I gave it a couple of more weeks, but have decided that the tiredness, moodiness, etc. are too unbearable for me. Is it a bad idea to just stop it now? I still have another week to go before I get to the placebo pills, but I feel like I can't take it anymore. I feel like my mental health is way more valuable.
Any suggestions or advice? Bad idea to stop now? Pros or cons or stopping now?
Maybe I just came here to vent...
Anyway, thanks for reading,
