Anxiety, dizziness, shortness of breath


Q: Hello my name is Amanda Horton. I have been on birth control for a full four years now. I have tried a few different kinds because i end up having at least one bad side effect with each. I have experienced depression, anxiety, spotting, and with one I even had back to back yeast infections. I have been on Tri-previfem for over 6 months and about to finish a pack. Since before my last period, I have had this nonstop feeling of nervousness and a slight case of depression. Today I woke up not being able to calm down and having shortness of breath. i also have experienced random dizziness. Should I consider going off this birth control at the end of this pack?
