my behaviour is wrong

lately my temper and patience is none existing ATM, and I feel like I've no control over it?
I'm into my third month of my pill and I thought this would of helped with the mood swings but it hasn't?
I'm a nightmare to live with and I don't honestly know how my poor family is putting up with me?
I can be so quick tempered, nasty, moody and whilst I'm in that state of mood It's like I am ready to explode with anger?
like I've no control over it?
it's freaking me out now, I don't want or like this person,
I'm constantly apologising to my family for these outbursts and feel terrible and full of guilt, and sometimes I get really upset and cry because of how my behaviour was/is....
I don't now what the hell is wrong with me but I'm so angry??
I'm very happy with my family but seem to be taking this anger out on them and its not fair, but I just can't seem to control or shake it off?
has anyone else experienced this before? and how did you over come this?
thanks got listening..

So are you saying you had mood swings before and hoped the pill would help balance your mood?
Perhaps you need to change pill. I had one that made me feel a bit loopy, although I can't remember now which one.
There are some herbal remedies which lots of Mnetters recommend so I'm sure someone will be along soon to help (agnus castus is one I think?)
I hope you feel better soon.

Also recommended by some people is a change of diet. Do you drink fizzy drinks? The aspartame (sp) is thought to make you irritable.

I have tried taking the pill before and even the mini pill sent me bonkers and extremely depressed. As soon as I stopped so did my symptoms. I now avoid any contraception with hormones in it like the plague.

Have you taken the pill before and had these problems? Maybe its an idea for you to make an appointment with your gp to discuss other contraption.

Have a Thyroid function test to rule out Hyperthyroidism. I was like you when I had it, but had other symptoms before that happened - weight loss, feeling hot and sweaty, racing pulse and very nervous.

hi thanks for your comments,,
I have made an appointment to see the doctor and the earliest is Tuesday afternoon sad
I have taken the pill before but that was before I had my children roughly nine years ago and I had no problems with it then, didn't even now I was taking it.. the thing is my behaviour was before I started taking it,, but made it a little worse at first now I'm back to just being hormonal, it's very weird?
it's starts as me feeling normal, level headed, very nice for a while then gradually ill get more and more moody and quick tempered then nasty then bang I feel like my heads about to explode and I've no control of my behaviour then it slowly goes away and the same ‘routine' starts again??
it's freaking me out now and I'm so embarrassed too,
I've never had a thyroid test done what do they do?
I have also found out that my blood pressure was high when my doctor first gave me the pill (microgaynon) and they want to ‘check it' before letting me have it again? was it supposed to be given to me in the first place??
since taking the pill my periods have been very clotty and large ones at that,, but on the plus side my stomach isn't as swollen untill I'm due it...
do you think my blood pressure being high could be causing this mood pattern too?
thanks for your help smile
