Turning into a psychopath after the bcp

I'm 18. I started the pill last year at the beginning of January, I was on sprintec. In February I had unprotected sex and I realized I missed 2 days of bc so I bought the morning after emergency contraceptive.. Literally 4 days later I felt HORRIBLE I felt so depressed and angry and I didn't care about anything. Since then I've had multiple suicide attempts but I've been off the pill since last march. I've become extremely homicidal which I have never been before. I get images of brutally hurting someone including my girlfriend.. And I can't connect with anyone.. I have no empathy. I just hate life. I'm irritable and angry and I've never ever ever felt like this.. I've always been a sweet person. I've been to 10 psychiatric facility's so far I've been on 9 antidepressants which didn't work and I've also had electro convulsive therapy which didn't work either.. What's going on wtih me?! Is it my hormones?!
I've been lying about everything
I've wanted to kill everyone for no reason
I'm just very unhappy
Am I a psychopath now? I feel nothing for anyone.. I used to.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The high hormonal content of the ECP affects your hormonal levels resulting in new symptoms. If your symptoms have remained persistent, consider coming off all hormonal birth control measures. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. You may also consider taking behavior therapy and counseling sessions to help you cope up with your thoughts and symptoms.
Take care.
