I've been on this for a month and the emotional side effects have been awful. I'm normally a very happy person and my friends used to tease me about how I would never get mad, but now it's like I'm a ticking time bomb of depression and anger.

A decade that I've blamed motherhood for my moodiness, lack of motivation, sudden escalation in emotions, lack of focus/so much focus I will leave everything else aside, overwhelm. I've seen a counselor to help me but still co ... Show Full Comment

Became depressed and overly emotional. Even went into the bathroom at work to cry over NOTHING. Horrible emotional side effects. I praying I can find a BC that works without the emotional side effects.

Comment:
I am normally a really happy and positive person. On the first month I could tell I was not as upbeat and became a bit more anti-social, that was easy to fix, and also went away. I had fine C cups, and now after using it for 2 months I have good D sized cups. I also had little to no acne before using Zovia, and after the 3rd week I started getting acne everywhere, not horrible. But I hate acne and ... Show Full Comment
