Depression during period
Hi, I suffer badly from depression every single month during the first day or two. Is this normal? I am on Yasmine and have been taking it for about two years. I get depressed now and then but during my period it is quite extreme. Could my emotions just be more sensitive during this time?

Yes, emotions do change around period times. You might consider an antidepressant.
