side effects of contraceptive pill
I've been taking Mirelle for about a week now. it makes me tearful but other than that it's (side effects of Mirrelle), for me, are fine. But at the same time I've been severely depressed for about 3 days, to the point where I cannot function. Can this be due to the Pill? I'm also taking Cilift at the same time.

It is possible that your depression is due to the Pill but, if you are depressed anyway, it will be hard to tell what the exact cause is. The Pill is known to make depression worse sometimes.
