I presume she's recommending low-dose birth control; reading on this site that seems logical, and less likely to cause irritable moods or depression. But is low-dose birth control at a high risk of exacerbating pre-existing depression? I've also been told it might make my depression in general better, so I'm a little confused. (Planning on charting my mood/regular visits with a psychologist during the first three months anyway, but I just want to know what to expect.) I'd just Google this, but I'm really worried about misinformation/speculation from people who haven't actually experienced this scenario.
Sorry if this is a foolish question of if it's been asked before! I checked over the HBC tag and read the VulvaPedia page on the topic, but I'm new to VaginaPagina.
