I was on the pill from aged 17 and my GP changed my brand at the beginning of this year, aftering always taking hte same one.

I'm now 32 weeks pregnant and took the new pill reliably. Beware!

Chat to your GP about possible reasons for you feeling low and see what they suggest, maybe a new pill would work, maybe it wouldn't.

Best of luck

Funny to hear your experience MamaG, a similar thing has happened to me. I was on the same pill for about 8 years before changing to a new one, took the new pill carefully as instructed and I'm now 20 weeks pregnant!

laughalot - the new pill that I changed to made me feel pretty low and emotional, so I'd say that your pill could possibly be causing the way you feel too. It's just started affecting you differently now as your natural hormone levels have changed as youve got older and had children.
All you can do is try a new one to find out I guess? Hope you're feeling better soon.
