I am 21 and I had been on Loestrin 24 fe for about a year and a half and I started getting anxiety and depression. I also had some vision problems that happened to me as well. After I realized that all my symptoms were because of the pill I immediately stopped. I have been off of it for about 6 months now and I am still struggling. I have had major anxiety and panic attacks and I have also had huge mood swings, foggy thinking and extreme irritability. I have no idea what is going on but these pills have really messed me up. Has anyone else had these problems? I just want to feel better and any advice would be really great. Thanks.

Becca, those are very unusual side effects for an oral contraceptive, though they have been known to occur in a very low number of people, due to the fact that it does use hormones to prevent pregnancy.

And Mo, yes skipping your menstrual cycle can be perfectly normal, while you are taking them.

Have either of your respective doctors done any other checking to ascertain whether or not it is the pill, or something else that's causing your issues?

Re: Verwon (# 2)

Actually Progesterone is known to cause anxiety. It’s super common.
