If you think birth control is the reason for your insane mood swings, or loss of sexual desire, you may not be getting the right kind of nutrition. If you don't already suffer from depression, anxiety, and other crazy mood changes resulting from the pill it could be because your birth control has depleted your body of vitamin B6. It's so important to take either a multivitamin or a B Complex Vitamin everyday, this can result in better moods and also changes in sexual desire. What you also may not know is that your diet can affect your sex drive as well as mood swings. Exercise (especially weight training) keeps testosterone levels up as well as relieves stress which can result in a better mood!
