What contraceptive pill would be best for depression/anxiety?
I was on Logynon ed (uk pill) which had a high progestin potency and was triphasic. I believe that this pill made me depressed (only felt 'okay' on placebo week), and came off it. I get anxious around ovulation and before my period.
I've read that going for a triphasic, low progestin and maybe even a higher oestrogen to progesterone ratio would be better. Are they correct?
