I been on a few different kinds of birth control since I was 15. The first time I switched to a new pill was when I was 20 and it was because my gums were bleeding too much. My dentist thought it was because of the pill. I was on the new pill for two years after that. I started to become really depressed at one point and someone told me it could be because of the pill. I switched again. I have switch two other times. I have been on Yasmin for a month and half now. I feel like my depression has gotten the worse it's ever been since I started taking Yasmin pill. I read online that people have had the same experience with this pill. I have explain to my dr that I thought the pill was causing me depression and it seems like she still isn't prescribing me one that is right for me. I am considering getting off the pill but I am afraid of what will happen if I do. I have been on the pill for 12 years now. I originally went on it because my periods were really painful. Does anyone recommend one that doesn't cause depression. Any advice or a similar experience?

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
