At the end of 2008 I began to experience overwhelming anxiety, depression, debilitating brain fog, and intense panic attacks which effected my work and relationship. For six months I thought I was losing my mind. After questioning every aspect of my life, and my sanity, I eventually discovered it was not me, but the birth control pill I was taking.
I soon discovered many other young women were dealing with similar side effects.
Millions of healthy women take a powerful medication every day from their early teens to their late thirties - the Pill - but few know how this drug works or the potential side effects. Contrary to cultural myth, the birth control pill affects every organ and function of the body. Depression, anxiety, paranoia, rage, panic attacks - just a few of the psychological effects of the Pill for half of the women who pop these tablets during their lifetimes.
