Have you heard the brand new breaking news that hormonal birth control is “likely to cause depression"?! ARE U FUCKING KIDDING ME?! DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Yes, hormonal birth control is liberating and its availability initially represented “one small step for womyn, one vagiant leap for womynkind” and we should HAVE ACCESS TO IT AS A MATTER OF CIVIL RIGHTS, but it should be better and safer than this and we should have more options!!!!!! Of course this is not the case for everyone, but “anecdotally” (aka in my own experience and in the experience of those close to me), the pill has caused paranoia, body dysmorphia, insomnia, mania, rage, mood swings, depersonalization, complete and utter despondency, suicidal ideation, chronic urinary tract infections, physical weakness, loss of sex drive, serious downtrend of mental, physical and emotional health and everybody fucking knows this already. Ask most women and they will tell you a story about a pill that “made them crazy.” This isn’t just in our heads. The pill “works” insofar as it’s effective at preventing pregnancy and menstrual cramps. You know what doesn’t work? Crying on the way to work every morning and not knowing why, feeling angry and irritable for no reason and hurting those close to you, feeling out of control, feeling like your body has been hijacked, having panic attacks, suffering with a life-threatening blood clot, looking in the mirror and seeing someone you don’t recognize, feeling cursed, like you wish you could just wake up dead tomorrow, having this experience remain “anecdotal” because nobody fucking cares enough about our mental health and wellbeing to study these effects in any substantive way and it’s 2016 and just now, we receive the breaking news from on high that the pill is “likely” to cause depression. Talk to me about your experiences with it. @babe__lin
