Used Chateal for 6 months. Became extremely depressed and moody. Crying a lot. Angry and screaming a lot. Would just stare off into space feeling broken hearted sometimes.

This birth control works as a method for controlling pregnancy, but it effects my moods entirely too much. I have such low lows that it's hard to stop crying at points. I wouldn't recommend this, it's scary that THIS is what gets handed out for free at my Planned Parenthood.
