Five Months Ago, I Stopped Taking Birth Control After 7 Years Of Being On It — This Was My Experience
I wanted to see (among other things) if my mood would be affected.
Hi! I'm Fabiana, a 27-year-old woman who is trying to figure out what's best for my health. Speaking of health, let's talk birth control.
I never gave my pill much thought when I was younger. Fast-forward to now: I'm a single woman in my late 20s who is questioning everything I put in my body. (I had a lot of time on my hands during the pandemic, obviously.)
But first, let me back up. In early 2020, I found myself moodier than ever.
Then when quarantine happened, I had more time to realize just how often my mood changes throughout the day, something I used to ignore and push under the rug. My emotions were all over. I could cry at the drop of a dime, and I snapped at anyone and everything. Don't get me wrong — I'm a Scorpio who can be moody — but I'd also felt things were personally off for me for awhile.
