I was on the pill for several years. I tried various types and hormone levels, but they all made me very irritable. My husband couldn't stand it. I eventually stopped taking them and we relyed on condoms only for a while. The pills were definitely the cause of my irritability and anxiety. I recently had a Mirena removed and I didn't have any issues with it. No depression or anxiety. I am going to have another one put in after we have our second baby. Give yourself more time to adjust.
