Well, as you guys know I jump the broom September 06, 2014! I’m beyond excited, but can’t even begin to tell you guys about all of the millions and millions of details that go into planning a wedding. Whew. One thing that was most definitely on my list was birth control. Do I want to have brown babies with afros and sparkly eyes? OF COURSE. Do I want to have them right away? Heck no. I need to have my husband to myself for at least one year. With that being said, I recently went to the doctor ,and weighed out all my options. I came to the conclusion that “the pill” was the best decision for me. They gave me Microgestin 1/20. It all goes downhill from here.
I really didn’t notice any difference the first 2 days of taking the pill. However, midway through the week EVERYTHING changed. I’m usually able to focus, seeing that I have deadlines, etc., but for some reason I could not focus. It took me 3 days to complete ONE post. Sad. Also, when I would make myself focus, I would become extremely tired. Definitely strange for me.
On top of that, I was extremely sad. I felt hopeless and I didn’t know why. It didn’t make sense, because my wedding is less than 30 days away, and things are finally falling into place. This is the happiest time in my life. I may have started a few arguments with Steve, because he was in the room. What the? What in the heck was wrong with me?!?
AND my face was breaking out. Ew.
I finally decided to do some thorough research on Mircogestin 1/20, and was shocked with what I discovered online. Everyone who’d taken this pill had the same side effects as me: sadness, depression, acne, and bloating. Aw nawl!
And I’m just now learning about this because? Nope. Time up, been up. After reading all of the scary testimonies to Steve, we decided I should stop taking the pill. It was either that, or call off the wedding. Just kidding I have an appointment Monday to weigh out more options. *sigh* Take 2.
Have you ever taken
the depression pill Microgestin 1/20 before? Did it make you crazy like me? I’d love to hear about your experience below
