stop pill or what?
I've been on the pill forever. Started taking it for my skin and to make my period regular. I am now 30 and have recently started experiencing drastic mood swings, depression, anxiety, insomnia, demotivation, hopelessness, fear. I have everything going for myself, but feel like I am losing control and I fear I am going to lose everything including my mind. I feel like a failure. I am also not coping with the stress at work. My boyfriend thinks I should stop taking the pill as it might be the problem. I take Minerva which is the generic of Diane 35. Please help.

If you have never had problems with the Pill before, it is unlikely that it is responsible for your symptoms now but I guess the only way to know is to stop it and see.
