I started the mini pill a week ago and can honestly say I feel a shift in my mood? I feel happier, more relaxed and more upbeat- can this really happen? Not complaining but feels too good to be true!

I was over producing oestrogen so maybe the progesterone intake is the reason? Any ideas?

I experienced this too. Went to the dr last mth as my last period I was having suicidal thoughts sad. I can’t belive the difference it made to my mood, I’m on a progesterone only pill also. Wish I’d gone months ago.

My counsellor told me to go on the pill to improve my moods. I'm on the progesterone only pill and it has worked wonders.

Wow that's really encouraging to hear! I am going to hope it's not just a coincidence or placebo then. And I was preparing myself for lower mood!

Glad you are both feeling better.
